This astrophotograph was taken back in early March. This was one of the stops I made with my father and brother on our cross country trip. Arches National Park was probably the highlight of our entire drive. So many beautiful arches in the park. Hindsight 20/20 we should have spent half of our week in Utah as it was incredible. We ended up making it to four out of the 5 national parks. The only one we missed was Canyonlands, but this will give us an excuse to go back.
The people of Utah were extremely friendly as well. We stayed at a little Bed & Breakfast called Rainbow Country Bed and Breakfast in Escalante, Utah. It was our first experience at a B&B, but it was awesome. The couple who ran the place were extremely accommodating. Plus who doesn’t like having breakfast cooked for them as soon as they roll out of bed?
Had an awesome dinner the night before at Escalante Outfitters. The building is extremely unassuming. To be honest we expected frozen pizzas, but we ended up having the BEST calzones we have ever tasted. To keep with the friendly theme the staff was extremely kind. The people in Utah seem very humble.
Technical information on the photo: Shot with a Nikon d600, and a Rokinon 8mm fish-eye lens. Shutter speed was 25 seconds, ISO was 2400, and aperture was 3.2. The tripod used was a 3 Legged thing Brian. Such a great versatile tripod.
