Antelope Canyon was truly one of the most memorable places I've been to as a photographer. It was a photographer's dream! I could have spent hours there (more than I already did).
In a slot canyon, light truly is the boss since you have a narrow window of opportunity in which to shoot your photos. At Antelope Canyon (just outside of Page, Arizona) there is the Upper Canyon and the Lower Canyon, the latter being the wider of the two. When shooting the narrower Upper Canyon you really only have two to three hours (just around the midday hours) of time where the light is high enough in the sky to shine down to the floor of the canyon. It's at this time when all the photographers are scrambling to get the shot they've been patiently waiting to get! These are the shots you see with beams of light shooting down into a dark cavern.
That doesn't mean that a trip to Lower Canyon isn't worth your time. I recommend you take the Photographer's Tour to Upper Canyon, and finish your day here at Antelope in the Lower Canyon. You won't be as pressed for time and you'll be amazed at how quickly the hues of the red rock canyon walls change colors. There's such an amazing variety of colors you will be in awe!
