Judges Comment

This image makes you dream yourself to an assumedly distant location where the sun is your friend. It has adventure and 1001 nights about it.

My name is Dr. Parvinder Sethi and I am a geologist. I used a Nikon D200 with a Bogen-Manfrotto tripod to take this photograph at Noon on the day of the Summer Solstice in the Antelope Canyon in Arizona - when the sunlight makes a unbroken beam from a little hole on the ground surface all the way to the dark depths of the canyon. You can view my photography at (or in my facebook albums by sending me a friend request to Parv Sethi). Happy photographing and congratulations to the winner for a truly stunning image!
