As I turned around the corner deep in the bowels of Lower Antelope Canyon, I came across the Lion’s Head, a natural formation in striated walls of the twisted canyon. Seeing this almost organic form set in the inorganic structure of sandstone took me by surprise. The strange forces of erosion had sculpted this unique canvas into such a familiar shape.
Perhaps what added to the atmosphere was one of the nearby tour-guides who scrambled up a nearby wall and started playing his Native American flute. A soothing melody filled in the small cavernous space around, increasing in clarity and meaning as the crowd grew silent trying to catch the song. The mellifluous song transported me to the past, to an age sans civilization, to an age of nature.
While I could never hope to capture that otherworldly feel in a static photograph, I did the best in capturing the essence of the Lion’s Head that day in Lower Antelope Canyon
