Another one of these photos…

Photo Caption: Another one of these photos I’ve been sitting on all summer to edit.. This was from a trip I had headed up to the area near Zion and Bryce with some non-photographer friends.. Lucky for me one of them was interested enough to tag along with so I didn’t have to shoot alone; we took naps each evening and then rolled out of bed at 1am. We had been hiking and exploring earlier in the day and I spotted this composition and knew I wanted to shoot it so we hiked a little ways in to get there by 2:30 am when the moon was just setting. I was new to shooting at much longer focal lengths and 20 seconds for the sky At 28mm didn’t seem bad (I love shooting at 28 now). It still doesn’t as I don’t see any trailing of the stars but I don’t understand why I don’t! The foreground was 2.5 minutes each image but stacking helped clean it up pretty nicely!

Even in April I was chilly and wearing my snowboard jacket to keep warm and gloves on my hands.. thankful that my friend joined me because doing this shot wouldn’t have been nearly as fun. Do you prefer to shoot with friends or alone?
