"Antelope Canyon"


US
          

I plan on being at Antelope Canyon during my Tour of the Southwest on November 5th are there any guides or tours that you recommend. Also should I do the upper or lower or both and how crowded it could be in early November. Right now I am planning Antelope Canyon right after Monument Valley which I booked the Photo Guide Service and the Hunt's Mesa Photo Tour with Carlos from Keyah Hozhoni tours.

Thank You
Chris

You will need a guide to go to Upper Antelope Canyon. There are places in Page where you can find one. The last time I was at Lower Antelope there was a time limit that you could be in there. You just went to Lower and bought your ticket.

Upper Antelope has the famous photo of the light beam showing through, Lower is much more difficult in getting through since it is narrower and requires some minor climbing.

Do not plan on changing lens or bringing lots of gear

I was just at Lower Antelope Canyon, on October 9th, with fellow Nikonians on our Anpat 13. You do not need a guide for Lower. They give you about a 2 hour limit to get through the canyon. Cost, if you want to bring a tripod, is $36 per person. Less if you do not bring a tripod. It was not too crowded last week as I think many people stayed away as the parks were closed. Beautiful photo opportunity. Just underexpose to get best color.

If you want to call me I can give you lots of info. I've been two both canyons twice, most recently April of this year. I can also e-mail you several pages of info.

Also check for other threads on this subject, as I gave quite a bit of info on one several months ago.

Take a filter. There are lots of unaware folks throwing sand into the air to highlight the shafts of light streaming into some of the "rooms". They don't seem to realize there are others with their lenses pointed up. A right angle finder is also nice if your tripod at it's stable position is low enough to make viewing difficult when you have the lens pointed up.

Best Regards,
Roger

It's still, ISO, aperture and shutter-speed, right?
