Milky Way over The Organ - Arches NP
Milky Way stars over 'The Organ' in the "Courthouse Towers" region of Arches National Park. The Organ has been light painted (aka light painting) from a stationary quartz halogen light (see lighting and camera position map below). The glow on the right horizon is from the moon, which will rise in another 30 minutes. Camera direction is North.
