Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden

This image is of the "Garden of Eden" section of Arches National Park. The two pillars are called "Adam and Eve." The image was taken at 3:30 am and I initially thought the bright object on the left was Venus and the sky glow from the sun. This didn't make sense however since the sunrise wasn't for 2.5 hours!


When I got home I used an astronomy program to map the objects (see my comment inside).


This image is a 30 sec. shot at f2.8 and ISO 3200. I was amazed at the lack of noise at this relatively high ISO. I did a little indirect light painting with my flashlight to lighten the foreground.
