This image was taken during one of my night photography workshops in Arches National Park in August 2013. Please consider joining me on one of my night photography workshops this summer (2014) as I have two events with spots remaining open including one event at Arches & Canyonlands. If you’re interested, act fast because they’re coming up soon!

Here are the details.
• June – Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado (5 of 6 spots available)
• August – Arches & Canyonlands National Parks in Utah (4 of 6 spots available)
