Milky Way stars over Landscape Arch
Milky Way stars over Landscape Arch, in Arches National Park. The arch was illuminated by a 2-million candle power, stationary, reflected light (not light painting) about 700 feet to the left of the camera.
See the awe-inspiring NightScape VIDEO – with one Milky Way after another!
Longest and thinnest natural arch in the world: Landscape has the widest span of any natural arch in the park: 290 feet (88 m.).

Behind the scenes: The NightScape Story
My new ebook, Milky Way NightScapes, gives extensive details on how to enhance the landscape foreground. Three other chapters cover planning, scouting, forecasting star/landscape alignment, shooting and post processing.
