Looking out my window at home, watching the snow fall, it’s nice to think back to a couple of days ago when I was visiting Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah with Jennifer King Photography Workshops. The weather there was surprisingly mild for February and it allowed for extended photography opportunities including some pleasant night photography.
The image above was taken at the Grand View Point in Canyonlands at sunrise. It is a spectacular vista overlooking the white-rimmed canyon below.
The shot below, while not particularly dramatic and an image that is iconic for Arches National Park, is a reminder to me of the challenging hike to reach this viewpoint. The view of Turret Arch through the North Window is amazing in person.
We took advantage of the mild nights to photograph the stars while in Arches. The star trails below were taken under the Double Arch formation.
