Behind The Lens

Location
An arch out in the middle of nowhere in southern Utah
Time
Late into the night
Lighting
The dark skies of southern Utah provide perfect conditions to get this type of image
Equipment
Nikon D850, tamron 15-30 induro Tripp’s
Inspiration
Really loved the arch and wanted to showcase it with a powerful milkyway alignment
Editing
Yes I do a lot of color and contrast post processing to my images ???? and blending to avoid image noise
In my camera bag
Camera lenses and batteries, Lume cube and my foolography unleashed remote
Feedback
Find the darkest sky you can and stack or blend images to maximize detail
