Spooky Canyon is very narrow, and it gets pretty deep in places – so it’s often necessary to use a long shutter speed in order to capture detail in the shadows. The bumps along the walls provide interesting details, and the curving walls of the canyon are great for leading lines. The challenge for wide-angle photography is to get everything in focus, even when the walls are so close to the camera. This is when it’s important to know the limitations of your camera and your lens.
Here’s another shot of some of the interesting details on the canyon walls at the front end of the slot. You can see the richly colored, orange sandstone through holes in this thin sheet of darker iron.
