Mauve Mushrooms: I hope to bring viewers a glimpse of beautiful landscapes that they may never get to visit. This area is special in day or night, but you can see a lot more during the daytime, lol. This is another of the fabulous white canyons of Utah. They are off the beaten path and path finding is mostly free form, although there are a few poorly demarcated paths. In this location erosion has cut down into the white under surface leaving caps of beautiful mauve-vermillion colored stone. A nice feature of these locations is they are rarely visited. Including day and nighttime I’ve been to this location maybe 7-8 times and never seen anyone that wasn’t with me. It’s best to go with a companion or take a satellite phone because if you get injured you might not get found for days. Actually, it’s best not to get injured, lol. __________________________________ This is a stacked blended panorama, meaning that the foreground and sky were exposed separately, but during the same night (back to back) from the same tripod position, and them the sky and foreground re-combined with software. This is a real scene. Sky: Stacked, 24mm, f/2.0, 10 sec., ISO 5000. Foreground: Stacked, f/1.4, 30 sec., ISO 8000. The bright area on the horizon is light pollution from a small town.

This is a fascinating spot in Utah that’s is seemingly rarely photographed, especially at night. There are miles of fabulous canyons. I’ve been there a number of times and never seen another person. There are still so many untapped locations for night photography. This is a panorama of stacked images. 12-24mm lens, 24 mm, f/2.8, 15 sec., ISO 6400.

Meet Yin and Yang, the two headed hoodoo. These hoodoos were very vocal and opinionated. 🤔 The one leaning left was very liberal, and the one leaning right was quite conservative. You can easily see that they have a lot in common, but sadly they seemed to be growing apart. OK,OK, that’s as political as I’ll ever get and I’ll stop now. 😂____________________________________ This is a spot I doubt has been shot at night. There are still so many opportunities to shoot in locations that have not been photographed at night before. Finding these places is like a treasure hunt, so go hunting! ____________________________________ Stacked blended image. There is a foreground stack focused on the hoodoo and a sky stack focused at infinity. Foreground: 20mm, f/4.0, 30 sec., ISO 8000. Sky: 20 mm, f/2.0, 15 sec., ISO 6400. Low Level Lightning was used in a manner to try to reproduce true foreground colors. Camera White Balance was set at 4200K and the light panel Color Temperature was set at 4800k.

White and Green: White Hoodoos and Green Sky, not quite what your mind imagines in the SW USA. The green skies are from airglow, faint light emitted from the upper atmosphere at night. Much of the SW has red or tan rocks, but there are some areas where the erosion has worked it’s way down into beautiful white layers of rock. These particular hoodoos are large and relatively tightly packed for such large structures, making compositions somewhat difficult. There is little room to back up and you are very close to the hoodoos. As a result most of my images from here are with a 12mm focal length to include as much as possible. Even with the 12mm lens I had to do some compositions as small panoramas. Stacked image, 12mm, 15sec., f/2.8, ISO 6400. There is Low Level Lightning to accentuate the foreground rocks. See lowlevellighting.info if you want to know about this technique. In this instance I used a camera White Balance of 4200K and a Light panel Color Temperature of 4900K to render the colors as natural as possible. Cheers, Wayne

This image is a blend 2 panoramas taken from the same tripod location, back to back, a long exposure panorama for the foreground, and a stacked panorama of the sky. You can see light pollution along the horizon from a nearby town. Sky: stacked, 24mm, f/2.8, 15 sec, ISO 6400. Foreground, 24mm, f/2.8, 300 sec, ISO 1600. The sky and foreground images were blended in Photoshop.
