I left the Delicate Arch area when it was dark out.  I had remembered there was a balanced rock formation on the way to the trail head and so on the way out of the park that evening I stopped by Balanced Rock and decided to do some astro photography.  It was a little cloudy that evening, but you could make out some of the stars pretty distinctly.  I was hoping to see more of the Milky Way, but I was there too early in the evening.  Hopefully I’ll capture it on my next trip.  Here’s an astro version of Balanced Rock Moab Utah in Arches National Park.

  • Great capture! The star-filled sky and wonderfully lit foreground are nice complements to the subject.

  • I’ve always love Arches and I never thought to shoot Balanced Rock and the night sky. Duh! Really like it and I will try this next time I visit.

  • Very nice, Rick. Love that sky and the lighting in this is perfect.

  • This is stunning Rick! Fantastic shot of this cool formation. I’ve never seen a shot like this.

  • Fantastic shot Rick! I have a few of these that I really need to get processed.

  • Fantastic Rick. This is a great shot.
