Photo by @FransLanting Magic light can transform an ordinary scene into something

Photo by @FransLanting Magic light can transform an ordinary scene into something extraordinary; it’s what photographers look for all the time to add an exclamation mark to their statements. It often occurs at dawn or dusk, when light gives way to shadows or vice versa, but in Arizona’s slot canyons magic light happens in the middle of the day. That’s when shafts of light suffused with dust can penetrate deep into a narrow canyon whose sandstone walls are shaped by water over time. Sunlight from high above bounces back and forth between the walls to create an ethereal luminosity deep down below that is reminiscent of a cathedral illuminated through stained glass windows. These are truly temples of nature. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of these special places.
