Some nice warm lighting in the late evening with some cloudy skies streaming overhead at The Windows area of Arches National Park. As I was taking this bulb capture and some other handhelds there, I looked behind me to see that the sun was about to fall behind a bank of clouds right along the horizon, that would be ending the direct sunlight on the rock formations from this direction.

It was then from this location that I made the decision to try and head over to the arches there, and climb to the other side and capture the Turret Arch (which I was standing at during this capture) through the North Winder Arch. From this distance I could not see if anyone had made the climb to the high ledge for that capture ... but figured I would give it a shot. Once I got over there, no one was up there, which was nice for me, but a shame, as having these nice clouds around at sunset was a super bonus, and it would have been a benefit for other photographers to be there and capture it. One of the images taken from the ledge I posted yesterday, and is shown below in the comments.

Park Avenue that is, as this area of Arches National Park is called. An iconic view that many get to see here on their way entering the park. It is a beautiful little canyon tucked in between the rock formations on both sides. I posted this one to show that it was a bit too forced an image with the bulb capture, as the clouds here were moving slow, and not towards the camera, so their effect is not as great. I would have loved to have had the clouds rolling in from the south direction at the camera, making the "v" in the formations there even more dramatic with clouds streaming in the opposite direction ... like many of the streaming clouds I was able to capture over top of the Grand Tetons.

Alas, you may see this view again with some other streaming clouds ... something I will have to keep an eye out for and just capture them and then apply some photoshop magic to ultimately achieve the image I had in mind here ... that will be a lot easier then moving there and waiting for the right clouds and direction to show up ;))

Between the multiple very long bulb shots being taken, as well as the fact that it was 104 degrees F in the shade there in Arches, this capture has a lot of "hot spots" from the sensor, that really show up at 1:1 in the darker areas of the capture. Still trying to find a program to address these ... should have switched to the other camera after a while to let the other sensor cool down, something to consider the next time taking so many bulb shots in short time in HOT weather ;)

I still really like the way this one turned out with the streaming clouds, the twsited tree, and the rock formations there in the Courthouse Area of Arches ... such a great place to visit and shoot!

This view there in the Windows area of Arches National Park caught my eye with the tree silhouetted agains the late evening western sky.

Was I hit on the head ... the North and South Windows asks ... as those eyes are seeing stars and clouds in this 30 second exposure in the very very late evening there in Aches National Park. The sun was set for about an hour by the time I got this exposure in the darkness there.

Compare this to the capture just before sunet below in the comments.
