Heavens Gate. Delicate Arch Starscape, Arches National Park, Utah

by josephrossbachphoto

I just returned home from 13 days in southern Utah with fellow photographer and friend Ian Plant. The first part of the trip was spent leading our Arches and Canyonlands Creative Vision Photo Workshop. After that we spent time in the Page and Escalante area backpacking and exploring slot canyons and sandstone rims.

This is a shot from the last evening shoot with the workshop group. After the light faded, we positioned the group below Delicate Arch and set up a starscape. This is a 30 minute exposure at 1 hour after dark with a twilight exposure for the glow on the horizon blended in. The arch was illuminated with about 20 flash bursts and a red gel.

Thanks for having a look and best of light,

    Nice work you have some great images here. I’m a bit envious of your White Pocket images. I am on my seventh week shooting in the Southwest and was not able to get to White Pocket due to lack of 4×4, really wanted to see it. For the same reason I had to hike into Cottonwood Cove in the South Coyote Buttes from Paw Hole. Seems like everyone is in the Southwest right now!
