    Hello Everyone,

    Based on previous requests, I have just finished writing an article about my personal experience of photographing Canyon X (near Page, Arizona), using my 4 x 5, where I went last week. If you are interested, have a look at: http://rafal.net/2011/10/photographing-slot-canyons-in-canyon-x/ - feel free to comment, your feedback in person in Dublin, or on the web has always been much appreciated.

    Looking forward to the next print showing - I hope I can make it.

    Regards,
    Rafal

    Top of the morning to you, Sir, from Australia. :smile:
    I'm not an enthusiast of the B&W genre, but this doesn't mean I pass up opportunities to look and your references are very satisfying. I very much appreciate considered technical work, and your representative image is very appealing indeed: the smooth, symmetrical almost Taoist-like contortions of the rock strata are very eyecatching. The thread caught my attention because I have friends touring the USA and have just reported their walking journeys around the Colorado River at Page and Slot Canyon. There were others they reported on: Antelope Canyon (Utah). This has been well visited by LF photographers from Australia shooting in B&W and colour.
