Standing guard above the Visitor Center at Capitol Reef, the Castle catches the evening sun.

The image was shot by Dave Koch in the Winter of 2017. It was shot with a Nikon D810 and an Tamron 15-30 lens. The image was shot at ISO32 with a shutter speed of 1/20sec at ƒ/22. A tripod was used while making the image.

The ISO was chosen first to allow the finest noise possible. Then an f-stop of 22 was chosen to insure a maximum depth of field. This resulted in the rather short shutter speed of 1/20th, which was fine for a tripod-stabilized shot.

This was the final image in a series of three set-ups and approximately 25 images. The initial image was from just off the road on the east approach to the visitors center. After shooting that, a curve in the river was noticed, and it was thought that created more interest in the composition. A second series of images was shot. Then Dave waited for the light to catch the pinnacles of the castle, and this final image was made.

Prints of various sizes are available on the Fine Art America website, as well as the artists Pixel site (http://davekochphoto.pixels.com/) and the artists personal site (http://davekochphoto.com).
