To Walk a Pale Land (one of a series). I’ve always loved a horizontal Milky Way hugging the landscape. This only happens for a few months of the year and for a limited time on those nights. In the American Southwest there have been wildfires in large numbers in the last few years making the low sky hazy and smoky, making it harder to get clear images through the low atmosphere. Looking back it makes me value these low Milky Way shots even more. Gentle Low Level Lightning (lowlevellighting.org) used to subtly lighten the landscape. 14-24 mm lens, 20 mm, f/2.8, 25 sec, ISO 12,800. Hope you enjoy, Cheers, Wayne

From the Archives: Here’s one I was slow to post for a couple of reasons. First, this location is super popular and there are an awfully lot of photos of this formation on the internet. Second, this was taken a few years ago when lighting was permitted in Arches National Park. Please be aware that Lightning is now longer allowed in Arches. Trying to reproduce a similar image now would be breaking park rules, so please do not use Low Level Lightning in the park now. Single Exposure, 14-24 mm lens, f/2.8, 15 sec, ISO 10,000.

Standing Tall: Windmills fascinate me at night. I love the way they silhouette against the night sky. Many times, after a long night of shooting, I’ll be packed up and on the way home and I see a windmill. It’s like a magnet, lol. I’m compelled to stop and break out the equipment and start shooting again. So I end up with a lot of windmill photos that I never post. After all, they do look pretty similar, lol. So why keep shooting them? I guess it’s just plain fun, and they do look majestic against the night sky when you’re up close. Here’s to having fun! Single exposure from the archives, 14-24 mm lens, 21 mm, f/2.8, 25 sec, ISO 10,000. Cheers, Wayne

To Walk a Pale Land: Stack, 14-24 mm lens, 24 mm, 15 sec, f/2.8, ISO 12,800. Often we find a super composition and become completely focused on it, forgetting to take a good look at what’s around it or nearby. Often there are other fascinating structures or compositions nearby that we miss due to the “big” one we came to see. This is such a case. I find this interesting, but it lies near a major landmark and is rarely photographed. Cheers, Wayne

Land of Endless Compositions: The trend nowadays is to not reveal locations, but it can be hard to talk about a shot without revealing the location. 🤔 Oh, well... There are almost endless compositions in the American Southwest if you are willing to look for them and do some hiking. Single, 24 mm, 20 sec., f/2.8, ISO 12,800
