Thanks for all the good advice! Unfortunately I already have the upper canyon booked and won't have time to do the lower. I wish I had several days in this area.

that was my problem as well.. at the time, i hadn't seen much difference between upper and lower except for the sunbeams, so i chose the upper (i got one during that tour that's been my best selling image so far, and has earned me enough to pay for the entire 10-day road trip!), but if i were doing it again, i'd spend an extra day in Page and do the lower canyon as well.

while you're there, if you have time, drive 2 miles south of Page on hwy 89 and look for the sign for Horseshoe Bend... it's about a half-mile hike, maybe a bit less, from the parking area to the canyon rim, and it is definitely NOT for those with a fear of heights (it's about 1100 feet straight down to the river and there are no guard rails!), but the view of the canyon is absolutely stunning! with a 10-22 you should be able to get it all in one shot - i couldn't fit it all in with a 17mm on my 40D, so i had to shoot several frames and stitch... try to get there either between 10 AM and 2 PM if you want the canyon lit, or go at sunset... either one will be a splendid view!

Thanks Rocky. I already have the coordinates to Horseshoe Bend in my GPS. :) We should arrive in Page the day before the tour around 5 PM. We're planning to go straight out there for the sunset.

One note of warning about changing lenses inside the canyon, the place is very dusty. I still changed my lenses a few times, but definitely have to be extra careful.

Oh, when I went to the Lower Canyon about two weeks ago, you can ONLY join the photo tour if you bring a tripod. A German tourist, who was on the tour with me, wanted his gf to join the tour. He was willing to pay but the group didn't let that happen because she wasn't actually going to take photographs. Just a heads up.

As for camera settings:

ISO 100-200
F/8 (you'll lose sharpness as you go smaller)
Shutter Speed: Adjust accordingly or Auto


You may consider bringing a longer focal length to get some abstract details of the rock formations.

I also agree to the 10-22mm on a 1.6x. The depth of field is pretty good after 5.6 @ infinity. And good thing infinity is about 6FT+!
