In April my brother and I camped in a wash at the edge of the road with this view of Old Paria in southern Utah. I took the foreground around 7 p.m. while the moon was still up, and after setting the alarm for 2 a.m. went to bed. When the alarm went off, I poked my head out of the tent and found the sky completely covered with clouds. Discouraged, I went back to sleep. An hour later my brother was making a racket outside my tent, and when I poked my head out I found this sky (and my brother asking something like, “Are you going to photograph this, or what?”)

Its surely one of the best spots to shoot the Arches with sun coming up through the canyons. Lucky me. 🙂

I particularly love being out under the stars in such surreal locations. It’s both humbling and exhilarating staring up at our Milky Way and realizing our solar system is one of billions in our galaxy, which itself is just one of billions of galaxies in the cosmos. Quite a lesson in perspective.
The sky exposure was at f/2.8, 25 sec, ISO 5000; the terrain exposure was taken around first light of dawn, f/8.0, 30 sec, ISO 100. Thanks for looking, and I’d love to have you follow me here and on FACEBOOK.
