Mountain Sheep Canyon has an extraordinary quality of light that filters into the Canyon and varies throughout the day, creating different moods and opportunities for remarkable photography. Many photographers prefer the softer light of early morning or late afternoon when the sunlight enters the canyon at a slant, illuminating the walls with vibrant hues and creating dramatic shadows.

The only obligation to book this tour, is you have to have a tripod and professional camera, no smartphone or iPhone photography. Since slot canyons are often dark with limited light, using a tripod is essential for stabilizing your camera and capturing sharp images, especially if you’re using longer exposure times. A wide-angle lens is ideal for capturing expansive views within the narrow confines of the canyon. It will help you include more of the surroundings and emphasize the depth and scale of the canyon walls. Additionally, consider bringing lens cloths to wipe away dust and a protective cover for your camera gear, as the canyon can be dusty.
