- Description: Here is another shot of Mesa Arch, but from a different angle (west end of the arch) to capture the "star burst" of the Big Star called The Sun.
I got to the parking lot around midnight, and crashed until 0400 hrs, got to the arch around 0430 hrs to beat the masses. I took an initial set of shots from my choice location, then moved to the one you see to capture the sun before it moved higher in the sky. There were a few irritable photographers, but towards each other due to one getting in the way of the other and not backing down. Anyways, the view from Mesa Arch a short period of time after sunrise. This image was a 2 shot composite taken at different focal points at F/16 & f/20...one exposed for the fore- and middleground and the second for proper exposure of the sky & sunburst...then blending in CS6. Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8, CP filter, ISO100, f/20, 38mm. Mesa Arch - Canyonlands National Park, Utah. July 8, 2012. As always comments are welcomed!
