Antelope Canyon is one of the world’s most photogenic landmarks and a photographer’s dream. Situated about 180 kilometers northeast of the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona, it is made up of two slot canyons — upper and lower — each formed by the rushing waters of the late-summer monsoons. Its wave-like structure creates a supernatural appearance when the light beams shine directly down into the openings of the canyon.

An iconic symbol of the Southwestern America, the sandstone towers have been sculpted by the forces of wind and water over millions of years. It has served as a backdrop in films such as ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Back to the Future: Part III’ and Disney’s ‘The Lone Ranger’.
