Description

This shot was taken from the famous bridge over the Virgin River at Zion National Park. It is often shot at sunset but I knew that I wanted to attempt something more unique from the spot. So I figured out what time of year the milky way would slot perfectly into the curve of the landscape above the river. I live about 5 hours away so I drove down that afternoon, took the shot overnight, and drove back home in the morning. The foreground was lit by a small LED panel I put a little ways down the bridge and the Watchman (the mountain in the distance) was lit by light pollution from the nearby town of Springdale, UT.
