The iconography of time

Billions of years ago some of those stars sent their light on a journey to delicate arch long before its grains of sand had even settled to the bottom of a vast ocean. This complex intermingling of time and space and light fills me with much awe, wonder and inspiration. I live for these moments.

 

Delicate arch is such a cliche place to photograph but this time I really tried to make something different. Here I did light painting with a snooted strobe through a 1/4 CTO gel standing up the hill camera left.

 

And I didn't even have to light a bonfire under it like that jackass Fatali :)
