The most famous formation in Canyon de Chelly, in Northeast Arizona, is called Spider Rock and it's the tower you can see in this image on the right. At a bit over 700 feet tall, this spire most likely remains standing due to a cap of harder limestone rock at the top which has shielded the softer sandstone below over the millions of years of precipitation that have worn down the canyon itself.
When arriving at this location in the dark before sunrise, I surveyed the weather and sunrise forecasting apps on my phone and decided that there wasn't going to be any color in the sky that morning, so I would focus on a composition that excluded the sky. I realized that if I positioned myself at a certain vantage point, I might get lucky and have a beam of light from the rising sun stream through a side canyon to the east of Spider Rock that was oriented basically in alignment with the sunrise, and that's pretty much exactly what I got. I love it when preparation and luck come together!
This image looks great printed on any of the media types below. My personal favorites for this image are Fuji Crystal Archive Matte and face-mounted Acrylic.
