Stitch of several images taken there at Owachomo Bridge to pick up the bridge and canyon under the crescent moonlight (shrouded by smoke in the air to the west) ... and wide enough to grab a view of the Milky Way here in the same view. You can also see that over the bridge there was quite a bit of that smoke coming across Utah from Cedar Breaks area forest fires.
It was quite incredible to be there under these lighting conditions to really take in the scene with the human eyes ... as well as with the camera sensor.

For the evening and into night that Mrs. Krach and I spent there at Owachomo Bridge, only one other photographer showed up. He was only there for several minutes, as he had earlier been hiking with the family trying to find some ruins down in the canyon. They headed off before sunset, and did not return until this time when it was pretty dark there with just the faint moonlight from the crescent moon.
I was setting my shot here when he stopped there under the arch of the bridge and was setting up a couple shots ... during my exposure here he was using some light there at his set-up to see what he was doing.
Made for an interesting moment here in the frame I was taking I think.
