Pic of the Day

Playing with the Zion lights

Recently I got to spend a night shooting the night skies at Zion national park. That night was supposed to have been an amazing meteor shower, but that never really showed up. I only counted a handful of shooting stars and decided to turn my attention instead to the milky way. 

Our galaxy was shining like I had never seen it before. At those high altitudes, away from any signs of civilization, the Milky Way was a masterpiece in the sky. I shot, then found a new spot, then shot, then found a new spot, then shot... That went on and on for hours. I even set up one camera to do a star trail, which you will see as a future pic of the day. 

Anyways, it's getting late and I need to get this pic out today so it still counts. So I hope you enjoy this shot I got as I saw that probably the only car in the park was coming my way at 3am, and I threw down my tripod and set it up just in time to get this shot :)

Hope you Enjoy
