Floor Light Pattern, Upper Antelope Slot Canyon

At Antelope Canyon in Page, AZ there are actually dozens of similar slot canyons, the most famous of which is Upper Antelope Canyon. This canyon can get quite crowded in late morning when the famous "Light Beam" comes along and after throwing dust in the air you can see the narrow shaft of light descending to the canyon floor.

This shot was also in Upper Antelope Canyon but is not the standard light beam one usually sees. The day I was in the canyon the famous light beam didn't materialize due to cloud cover. However an hour later, after most of the disappointed other photographers had left, in another part of the same canyon, I found this interesting sun pattern on the floor. While not a column of light like the “Beam” it is more an abstract shape that echoes the shape of the canyon walls (which of course is what makes the shape in the first place).
