Photo Of The Day By David Connel

Photo By David Connel

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Window Into Infinity” by Arches National Park, Utah.

“I spent two weeks in the Moab, Utah, area photographing night scenes in August,” explains Connel. “I slept during the heat of the day and spent all night shooting the stars. I knew the North Window arch had a lot of potential if the Milky Way would line up properly. Patience through hours of waiting finally paid off. I composed the scene with my camera on a tripod and climbed up into the arch. I communicated with my wife using a flashlight, and when I was in the proper position, she snapped the picture.”

Exposure: 20 sec., f/2.8, ISO 3200.
