Exploring Arches National Park in Utah was a rewarding experience for me. The solemn landscape where rock meets the sky, offers unique perspective for photographing the night sky. Talk about galactic center arching over the arches. Arches national park was designated as an International dark sky park this year by International Dark-Sky Association and most nights with clear skies are filled with celestial wonders.
This was shot from the trail that leads to Double Arch. The glorious arch of the milky way arching over the desert landscape like a perfect symphony in motion. And when the sun rises, the music fades.
This is a panorama of 8 vertical images shot with Nikon D810 using Nikkor 14-24mm at 16mm. Exposure 15s at f2.8; ISO 10000.
Symphony of Celestial Splendor
