American Images: Light of the Spirit Ghosts by John English

Image of the Day

Light of the Spirit Ghosts

Photographer: John English


Page, Arizona: A shaft of light beaming down from the sun through a crack in the slot canyon ceiling above. Antelope Canyon is located on a Navajo Indian Reservation and only accessible with an Indian guide.

The Indians think of the light as the Spirit Ghosts of their ancestors. With the light constantly changing the colors and shapes of the red sandstone also change. The shaft of light is only obtainable during mid-day certain times of the year and under dry, dusty conditions.© 2003
