Happy New Year!

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “A Delicate Night” by Ryan Moyer.

Taken in Arches National Park, Utah, Moyer had this to say about his image: “Hiking up to Delicate Arch at night with no moon was interesting. I actually missed a turn and ended up down in the bowl beneath the arch at first, with no idea that’s where I was. Luckily, I wasn’t the only one making the trek that night and someone already up at the top shined his light down to let me know what was going on. When I got to the top I couldn’t really get a composition I liked with the position of the Milky Way fairly early in the season. So I climbed up on some rocks off in a far corner that is less often trekked to, and found a good spot to capture the entirety of the Milky Way from tip to tip. This was an 8-shot panorama with a 14mm FF lens, so the FoV here was almost 180 degrees. Some light pollution from Moab and airglow added color the sky with the long camera exposures at high ISO.”
