After a rainy, cloudy, and stormy day near the Grand Canyon, Toby Harriman and I found a nice spot to camp. After hours of overcast weather we started to see a big opening in the clouds. Guess what it was full of? ….STARS! I took a few shots of the Galaxy, it was a beautiful night.

I have seen countless shots of this bend, but very few have an effective foreground that compliments the horseshoe shape of this awesome place (I dare you to find one!). Utilizing focus blending, I aligned a rock no more then 8 inches from my lens to complete the curve formed by the right cliff face 1000 feet below. I waited till the sun dropped enough to only light up the areas I wanted, and I love the natural bright frame it provided me with.
As for the image title, the glitter comes from all the tiny fruit flies in front of the lens being lit up by the sun. The full res file shows them all, plus you can easily make out boats and individual people at the bottom of the canyon. I can wait to print this for my upcoming art display!
Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy a more cheerful image this time around 🙂

Another shot from my March adventure in Antelope Canyon. So glad to have meet Lionel who runs Adventurous Antelope Canyon Photo Tours. If you are looking to get tripoded shots and even do a night tour, this company will make sure that happens! Even during the day in Upper Antelope they work with the other guides to get a break for you to get peopleless shots, never thought that would happen. But getting the whole canyon to myself and of course Lionel at night was definitely the pretty awesome!
I did realize once you get in you really don’t get stars though, expect at the opening, but still cool to light paint and get the freedom of no other tours around.
