I got off from work around 4:30 and drove clear across the Rocky Mountains from Denver and arrived at Arches National Park close to midnight just before the moon came out and washed out the stars. What I saw when I got out of my jeep was absolutely amazing. The sky was full of bright stars and the Milky Way stretched from one end of the horizon to the other. I was in total amazement. I located the perfect spot and quickly took out my gear, set it up and started to shoot. What I captured ended up being an absolutely amazing photograph.
