Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Focal Length: 16mm
Shutter Speed: 13 sec
Note: Paul Rojas took this photo of a Slot Canyon in Zion National Park, Utah. Slot Canyons are narrow canyons, formed by the wear of water rushing through rock (wiki link). Titled “Zion Subway”, the lighting from the tunnel gives a look of headlights approaching in a subway tunnel. The flowing water into the crystal clear teal body of water is beautiful. Reminds me of one of my favorite childhood movies, Goonies.
Tip: Paul took the time to get multiple areas of interest in this composition. The tunnel, flowing water and the teal body of water all make this photo very interesting. The smooth, flowing effect from the water was created by using a shutter speed of 13 seconds, which let more light into the camera. By increasing his aperture, allowed less light into the camera to help properly expose the image.
