This type of vertical light shaft photo is only possible in mid-summer when the sun is high in the sky and the light filters through a very narrow gap in the canyon around 30 metres or so above your head. The trick to nailing the shot is a combination of luck, good planning and an understanding of light and exposure. In fact I travelled to the US in July 2009 specifically to photograph this place and with the help of my expert Navajo photographer guide Mylo Fowler I was able to collect some images that portray just what an extraordinary location this really is. Mylo had an intimate knowledge of the slot canyons of Arizona and knew when and where the light was best and believe me when I say that timing is critical and you only get one chance when shooting these type of images.
