We were there in late October with a group of friends.  We toured/hiked Bryce Canyon, Zion, Grand Canyon, Sedona, Chelly, Arches and Canyonland as well.  We all chose Lower Antelope Canyon as the most amazing sight.  We took many pictures similar to yours.  Personally we have been to many places around the world, and Lower Antelope is among the best anywhere.  It is most surprising that it is relatively unkown here in its homeland.  Maybe it is because it is located in an Indian Reserve and they just do not have money to promote it.  If you are in the area, do not miss it.  It is located just outside Page, about a 4 hr drive from either Las Vegas or Phoenix.  Even the entrance to the canyon is amazing, just a small crack on the ground.

The photos show the place just the way it is.  It has that mysterious or even eerie feeling.  The local Indians consider the place holy and will not allow people to enter it unaccompanied.  They do provide tours for a fee at the gate.  For professional photographers with tripot, etc, there is an additional charge but not for typically tourists.  We live in Canada but plan to visit it again.
