Starry night sky and the Milky Way over the Thor's Hammer hoodoo, in Bryce Canyon National Park. This is actually the stitching together of five 15-second exposures. "Reflected" light painting coming from left of camera. Camera aimed towards northeastern sky. Note The Great Andromeda Galaxy (M31) and the Double Cluster.
Virtually all my NightScapes are ONE exposure (less than 30 seconds), and with little Photoshop correction --mostly to increase contrast. Watch the NightScape VIDEO – with one Milky Way after another! For more how-to and behind the scenes information, visit my Into The Night Photography blog. You can order PRINTS here.
