The Standley Chasm in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Over thousands of years water cut through these rocks leaving a 80 meter high and in some places 9 meter wide gap. If you go there - as recommended - around lunchtime the sun lights up the walls in a bright red glow. In the night you have to do it by yourself...

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in the at the Standley Chasm in the West MacDonnell Ranges National Park Australia.
Time
This picture was taken a few hours after sunset. The walk from the campground takes just a few minutes and after a nice supper we went to the chasm with my new torch.
Lighting
I just used my torch to light up the wall in front of me as I stand in the chasm.
Equipment
Canon EOS 70D, Sigma f2.8 10mm Fisheye, tripod, torch,
Inspiration
I was allways fascinated by night skies. Trying to capture the beauty of the night was just the next step for me.
Editing
I just did some minor color and contrast adjustments.
In my camera bag
My Canon EOS 70D, the Sigma f2.8 10mm Fisheye and a Tokina f2.8 11-16mm both mostly for night and landscape photography, a Sigma f1.4 30mm and a Sigma f2.8 70mm Macro. For Wildlife I have a Sigma 150-500mm Tele.
Feedback
The Outback of Australia is one of the best places to photograph nightskies. If you wait for a new moon you will see an jaw dropping milky way. To get a photo with a big part of the milky way you should consider to use a wide angle lens. And you definitely need a tripod because of the long exposure.
