While exploring Antelope Canyon, I saw this small slot canyon with 4 light shafts. Working quickly, I got setup. The problem was, how can I create enough dust to get the light shafts to really show up?
The solution came 2 seconds later. A group of tourist led by their guide rounded a corner, saw me, and joined in for the photo. 3 German guys volunteered for the dirty job of dirt throwing. They would throw a little dust up in the air, then duck down behind the rocks. It was dusty and dirty, but we all laughed till our stomachs hurt.
So, thanks to three well-hidden German guys, this was the final image.
