I've been planning this shot for months. This is a 24 image, multi-row panoramic of Utah's Mesa Arch with the Milky Way perfectly nestled above. Took a couple tries as the first night I had some pesky clouds. I shot this with a Canon 50mm f/1.4 and a Canon 1DX. Light painting a multi-row pano proved quite challenging and took many attempts to get things consistent enough for stitching. It was nothing short of amazing to have Mesa Arch all to myself two nights in a row.
