These beautiful sandstone textures and colors were captured in Lower Antelope Canyon in northern Arizona. This slot canyon boasts some of the most incredible reflected light off of its sandstone walls of any of the thousands of discovered canyons. Sandstone that is receiving reflected sunlight is turned soft shades of orange with hints of red, while sandstone receiving no reflected sunlight is shaded blue with purple highlights from the blue sky above. This sandstone face in particular shows the wide range of colors the sandstone can take on, creating a rainbow of pastel colors.
