I am really loving this night photo I took this past weekend. I was excited to use this 35mm that was pretty fast, F1.8 at 13seconds. I wanted to get the arch and sand dunes in my shot with the milkyway so I had to do a pano, a vertical pano and so i free-handed-tripoded it and shot it from the bottom to the top, 6 pictures.
I took this while I was guiding a couple out on a night photography tours in Monument Valley. It was the couple's first time shooting landscapes at night with the stars, they really loved it and it was a really nice time. If you are interested in shooting Monument Valley at night, shoot me an email or fill out a contact form and let me know, I will help you arrange it.
