Moving on from Antelope Canyonon Lake Powell, we rapidly moved on towards and into Navajo Canyon; slightly larger (in places) than Antelope but still an interesting place for geological formations and the effect that previous weathering had on the place. Of course, much of this would have been invisible except for the ever increasing drop in water level of the lake in recent years - for us, as photographers at least, the change has been a positive one:

1. Marina #2


Definitely more up-market compared to the first one - note the last boat with the 5 (!) jet ski's moored aft...

2. Turning In



3. This Land of Layers



4. In The Shadows



5. Carved



6. Splash



7. Spot the Dragon


Interesting how, even in Western Navajo folklore, there is an equivalent (as there seems to to be the World over) for the term 'Dragon' represented by shapes such as this.

8. Exit



9. Shore and Cloud



10. Powering Back



11. Cloud Machine



12. Shapes



13. Navajo Butte



14. Life in the Lake



So there we end our affair with Lake Powell (for the moment...) and heads off to explore further in what is left of the day.

Thanks for looking (again!) and, as always, comments and observations are always welcomed and encouraged.

Best regards, Neil.

Great you take us to this interesting part of the world. While these don't have the impact like previous series of your vacation, i like to watch them. #13 is the best by far here. TFS Neil .

What contrasts! At least if you look at #7 (well, I saw two dragons) and #14. #7 looks like a modern painting with streaks of red paint; and I have rarely seen such a soothing green situation as in #14.

And yes, #13 provides a gorgeous vista. Thank you, Neil, for this set!

Really like 11 and 13. Such dynamic colour in 11! 13 is a lovely landscape - and the clouds in both!

Best regards

7 for its abstract patterns and shape is quite unique. 11 - wow! All those diagonals and triangles beautifully composed; an example of selecting just the right framing for what must have been an overwhelming scene (I say that without knowing what the rest of the scene looked like).

The light layer in layers is the bathtub ring ... the high level of the water before the ongoing persistent drought. To understand how serious the drought really is, it is worth reading this article:(with some awesome pictures).
