Located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona, Lower Antelope Canyon is the most-visited and most-photographed slot canyon in the American Southwest. The canyon was formed by water and wind over millions of years. The Navajo sandstone was eroded by flash floods creating a long "slot" through the rocks. Wind, carrying fine grains of sand, then shaped the walls of the slot creating a variety of shapes and patterns. Sunlight enters the canyon through the openings at the top and bounces off the canyon walls creating colors and shadows.

Lower Antelope Canyon is a popular location for photographers and sightseers, and a source of income for the Navajo Nation. Photography within the canyons is difficult due to the wide exposure range made by light reflecting off the canyon walls.
