Default Entrance to Hell

Not really. This is the entrance to Lower Antelope Canyon in Arizona. Once underground it is a different world. That is the wife leading the way with the backpack filled with water and my box of Twinkies.

G'day jj

comments ... I guess 2 things
1- you say "Once underground it is a different world." ... can you show us any of it?
and
2- for above ground pix, this one is obviously shot during full sunlight > any chance of morning/evening light showing the cracks & folds in the rocks to their full shape & wrinkles?

Regards, Phil

Ozzie,

This is one from down below, not great but it gives you an idea. Don't have any more from above not taken at high noon.

nice jj. Never seen a shot taken from above the canyon before. Hope your twinkies weren't melted!

Wow, "not great"???? I think that underground shot is AMAZING! I need to go one of these days!! Above ground shot is pretty fascinating too, like flowing hot cocoa!

Great shots, both. In fact, as banksy said, the first one is not what we normally get to see. Your sweety looks like dipping into cocoa powder. A riot of colours and lines in the second one. Very well done, JJ.

G'day jj

Beautiful mate - really scrumptious
@Simon .... I suspect 'twinkies' are chocolate biscuits > cookies as 'that lot over there' call them :-)
