Arizona’s colourful Antelope Canyon by Gregory Boratyn [Big Picture]

Amateur photographer Gregory Boratyn, a 42-year-old software engineer from San Diego has shown the popular geological wonder, Arizona’s Antelope Canyon, in a new light thanks to clever use of photo software.

By highlighting the flowing ridges and varying surfaces found within the cavernous canyon, Gregory Boratyn believes he has, literally, shown the natural attraction in a new light.

“I think we all agree that pictures of Antelope Canyon are popular and one can find just about a million of them on the Internet,” Mr Boratyn explains.

“They are all very nice, but also very similar. So, I figured I’d make my pictures different by processing them in a unique way, so they stand out a bit. Otherwise they’d be boring.”

He continues: “First, I decided to make them monochrome. I converted them to black and white using photo software. They all looked rather uninteresting, so I added a bit of blue tonality.”

“The place in the summer time is quite cold, since it’s underground, so instead of black and white I decided to go with blue and black; to emphasize the coldness of the rock and the place itself,” he adds.

The results are dreamlike… These images look as if they have been taken in a newly-discovered Martian canyon. To see more photos from Gregory Boratyn, please, check his website
