You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been working on some updates to my site. They’re obviously not finished yet but I am working on getting everything going and hope to have the site finished by the middle of next week. I’m headed off to the Great Basin National Park for a couple days to do some scouting for a big project I’m starting next month. It’s supposed to be one of the darkest skies in the country so I’m so excited and I look forward to sharing some new images with you when I get back
This is Arch Rock from Joshua Tree National Park. I had checked out this spot earlier in the day and it seemed like it might work for some night photography. I went back around 2am to find the Milky Way in a pretty good spot for this composition. I used my head lamp directed at the granite boulders behind me to subtly light the arch.
