This is one from the archives that I never got around to posting, a famous double arch that must not be named, lol. I originally tried to get rid of the airglow and just never liked the results so I forgot about it. With the airglow left in place I like it more. This isn’t the best view of the Milky Way and I’m not sure just way I liked this, maybe because of the texture in the rock and unusual angle. Anyway, here it is! Single exposure with Low Level Lightning (lowlevellighting.info). There is a small light within the arch and another lighting the front surface, Z96 light panel. 14 mm lens, 30 sec, f/2.8, ISO 6400.

Another of Utah’s gems. An example of Nature’s Landscape Art. This spot has all the characteristics of a good location for Any kind of landscape astrophotography, but is ideal for Low Level Lighting (lowlevellighting.info). These are some desirable characteristics: a fascinating subject, no obstructing plants or rocks in front, preferably no large objects behind your subject (a non obstructed sky behind is best), long axis of your subject east-west (rather than N-S, this means you can lay out your subject enface with the MW behind), lots of open space around your subject so you can set up lighting as desired (plants and rocks can create annoying shadows - it’s easier if they are not present), something small and interesting in the near foreground (? flowers), something interesting in the distant foreground (? far away mountain), an absence of crowds (lol), and clear skies (the desert is wonderful for this). These are the ideal characteristics of a good subject at night but of course it just doesn’t work out that way most of the time and you just work with what you have. Scouting and problem solving is the fun part, figuring out how to be successful when your setting is less than ideal. There is usually a way to make it interesting despite the limitations of the landscape!
