The Colorado River from Granary Point, Grand Canyon. This is a blend of 2 shots taken from the same spot, back to back, a shorter exposure for the sky, and a longer exposure for the foreground. It's dark down there!!! Hope you enjoy!

Honeymoon Arch in Monument Valley. This is taken from "inside" the arch. There is a large opening in the front, and a large opening skyward. This is a vertical panorama taken with a 14 mm lens. The Arch has a much more standard appearance from the front which I will post later. ________________________________________This arch, and many of the other arches in Monument Valley are off the usual tourist routes. If you are interested in night tours google "Majestic Monument Valley Tours", call them and ask for a night tour with Quanah Parker. ________________________________________#longexpoelite #ig_astrophotography #natgeospace #longexpohunter #fantastic_universe #longexposureshots #natgeolandscape #amazing_longexposure #pictures_enviroment #landscape_bestpix #exploring_the_globe #earthfever #wow_america #travels_wishlist #amazingworldphoto #Superhubs_mobile #earthsnaturedaily #ipulledsoverforthis #wonderful_earthpix #ig_naturelovers #wonderful_places #epictravelpics #this_amazing_planet #supreme_nightshots #artofvisuals #nightshotphotography #bestnightpix #astralshot

Tower of Silence - Beautiful white hoodoo in southern Utah ________________________________________ I was honored to be on the Podcast "F-Stop Collaborate and Listen" with host @mattpaynephoto. He interviews Landscape and Nightscape Photographers about a variety of topics. His relaxed style makes the podcasts enjoyable and interesting. He helps you see the people behind the photos. You can listen to my interview here: https://fstopandlisten.podbean.com/________________________________________Teaching point: There are now LED light panels with adjustable color temperatures. The standard Light Panels with warming filters (which make the color temp around 2700K) are wonderful for warm structures like the red rock throughout much of Utah and northern Arizona, but are not realistic for structures like these white Hoodoos. With adjustable color temperatures you can adjust the light to the foreground structures. Regular LED lights are too blue to be realistic, and can have a color temperatures up to 6500K. For this scene I wanted a more neutral color temperature that would show the white color of the hoodoos accurately and used a color temperature of 4000K to 4200K for these photos, which worked well. ________________________________________#milkywaychasers #longexpoelite #ig_astrophotography #natgeospace #longexpohunter #fantastic_universe #longexposureshots #natgeolandscape #amazing_longexposure #pictures_enviroment #landscape_bestpix #exploring_the_globe #earthfever #wow_america #travels_wishlist #amazingworldphoto #Superhubs_mobile #earthsnaturedaily #ipulledsoverforthis #wonderful_earthpix #ig_naturelovers #wonderful_places #epictravelpics #this_amazing_planet #supreme_nightshots #artofvisuals #nightshotphotography #bestnightpix #astralshot

Just a really big rock that should probably fall over, 🤓. It looks so asymmetric that it is hard to imagine that it can remain this way. I came upon this 'balanced rock' on a scouting trip looking for good spots to shoot the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park. It lies just out of the park near Moab, and the light is from an small utility building about 400 m away that is part of the Potash Plant in the area. This rock looks so precarious that it was a little creepy getting down under it to shoot upwards. Single exposure, 14 mm, f2.8, 15 sec., ISO 8000. _______________________________________#milkywaychasers #longexpoelite #ig_astrophotography #natgeospace #longexpohunter #fantastic_universe #longexposureshots #natgeolandscape #amazing_longexposure #pictures_enviroment #landscape_bestpix #exploring_the_globe #earthfever #wow_america #travels_wishlist #amazingworldphoto #Superhubs_mobile #earthsnaturedaily #ipulledsoverforthis #wonderful_earthpix #ig_naturelovers #wonderful_places #epictravelpics #this_amazing_planet #supreme_nightshots #artofvisuals #nightshotphotography #bestnightpix #astralshot

Canyon de Chelly panorama, taken from one of the south rim viewpoints. Lots of light pollution is present from local homesteads and the town of Chinle, Az., but in this case it adds color and I think adds to the photo. ________________________________________#nakedplanet #fs_lonfexpo #amazing_longezpo #ig_#ig_nightphotography #superhubs_power #ig_shotz_max #nightimages #glo#globalcapture #magicpict #ig_bliss #earthvacations #fs_long_longexpo #gottalove_this #ic_landscapes #folkcreative #rsa_light_ #weownthenight #super-hubs #placeswow #globalcapture #beautifuldestinations #nightphotography #igworldclub_sky #ic_longexpo #ipulledoverforthis #fs_longexpo #amazing_longexpo #ig_nightphotography

The Totem Pole, Monument Valley, Utah. I am planning to lead a Landscape Astrophotography workshop in Monument Valley in June 2018, a 3 day workshop on June 7, 8, and 9 (Thursday through Saturday), and potentially a 4 day workshop June 11 through 14 inclusive. Sunday June 10 will be a "bonus day" for any participant who wants another night of shooting. I am trying to judge interest to determine whether to add the second workshop. Max of 6 participants in each workshop. Let me know you if you are interested in the comments below. Comments are non-binding, lol. This workshop will be run by Worldpix, a charity organisation, and all profits will go to charity, so your participation will be helping a good cause. I will be donating my time in leading the workshop. The idea is to have fun doing photography and aide a good cause at the same time. We will cover planning night shoots, photographing the Milky Way (and landscape at night), Low Level Lighting, and processing Milky Way photos, with emphasis on single exposure acquisitions.

To Walk a Pale Land: First in a series from the Ah-Sie-Sle-Pah Wilderness in the New Mexico Badlands. The area is a unusual sculptured landscape that looks as if a master photographer had turned the saturation down to "1". The appearance is even more pale than pictured here, as it's hard to reproduce the appearance. The ridges , ravines, and mudstone hoodoos are bleached of color, looking bland in color in the day, but surreal at night. Single Exposure, 14 mm,f 2.8, 25 sec., ISO 12,800.

This has to be one of the hardest photos I've ever taken.. I shot this at the Moria Gate Arch just north of Karamea, which is at the top of the West Coast of the South Island.. To get here we had to drive one of the most hectic roads in New Zealand in the pouring rain for an hour, I spent half the time looking out my drivers side window to see where I was going because the corners are so sharp! Then its another half an hour of the same crazy winding corners on a bumpy dirt road! A short hike through rain forest bought us to this amazing arch way and small cave system! It was just on sunset we arrived here so it was starting to get dark, which was lucky as these amazing glow worms started to light up! I loved how they made a leading line to the light from the arch way opening, but to line it up my camera had to sit right in the stream of a small water fall from an opening above me.. So I spent about half an hour fumbling around in a wet cave with a dying head torch, holding my cap over my camera to try stop it from being soaked, having to clean my lens from water drops between every shot, and also slipped in the mud once or twice too haha it was a pretty challenging but super rewarding time shooting! For this one, I blended 3 exposures to get the most amount of light from the scene, one darker shot for the highlights outside the cave, one for the glow worms and most of the inside of the cave, and one mistake exposure with my head torch on that gave some nice light to fill things in slightly :) Canon 6D Tamron 15-30 f/2.8 ISO10,000 f/5 15mm 30sec (Darker exposure at ISO1000) 📍#NewZealand #Canon #discoverdestination #thegreatoutdoors #globaltravelstory #nat#nature/a> #worldshotz #nature #wonderful_places #ahd_shotz #discover_globepix #myighub #universe247 #astrography_ #supreme_nightshots #superhubs_shot #earthexperience #nature_wunders #ig_exquisite #ouramazingearth #igsouthwest

We take it so for granted, how fragile our day to day life is.. So easily we could be hit by a car or have a heart attack and that would be it. But every single little moment perfectly lines up so that our day to day lives continue on in the illusion of comfort and safety without realising how lucky we are to just be alive and here experiencing this life.. I recently chose to leave the comfort zone of living in a house and doing the same shit every day and packed my life away into my car to travel the county with a crazy chick I had just met. All those little moments over the past 6 weeks have lined up perfectly to take me to some of the most incredible places imaginable with views such as this! I've had almost no money the entire time which has been an interesting mental challenge to overcome, but everything always worked out and I've had what ever I needed at the time to survive. You can chase your dreams now matter what you think might be holding you back.. And if you fail, then at least you tried! On a side note, if anyone wants to buy a print then I might just be able to keep going and make it up to the North Island ;) Tunnel Beach Aurora, May 28th Canon 6D Tamron 15-30 f/2.8 ISO6400 f/3.2 15mm 6sec 12 vertical shot, 2 row panorama 📍#NorthIsland #Canon #discoverdestination #awesome_earthpixx #MilkyWaygalaxy #thegreatoutdoors #globaltravelstory #naturerad #worldshotz #milkywaypics #wonderful_places #ahd_shotz #discover_globepix #myighub #universe247 #astrography_ #supreme_nightshots #superhubs_shot #earthexperience #nature_wunders #ig_exquisite #ouramazingearth #igsouthwest

:-)🔭Featuring the bright orange star Antares from Scorpius constellation, Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex is one of the most colourful nebulas in space and the closest star-forming regions to the Solar System, at an estimated distance of 460 light years.These interstellar clouds of gas and dust contain both red emission nebulas and blue reflection nebulas. The dark brown regions are caused by dust grains, born in young stellar atmospheres, which effectively block light emitted behind them. From the lower left corner, many dark absorption nebulas extends from the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy. Connecting the Pipe Nebula to the colourful region near bright star Antares, is a dark cloud known as “Dark River”, it can be identified as the brown dust lane connected to Antares, and spans about 100 light years. Since the Dark River dust lane lies only about 500 light years away, it only appears as a bridge to the much more distant Galactic Center, that actually #Portugal #nebulas #Antares #Scorpiusconstellation #Rho #Ophiuchi #discoverdestination #awesome_earthpixx #MilkyWaygalaxy #thegreatoutdoors #globaltravelstory #naturerad #worldshotz #milkywaypics #wonderful_places #ahd_shotz #discover_globepix #myighub #universe247 #astrography_ #supreme_nightshots #superhubs_shot #earthexperience #nature_wunders #ig_exquisite #ouramazingearth #igsouthwest

Ancient Bristlecone Pines. These are not alive, but these long living trees are fascinating even in death. They do not rot like usual trees after dying, and they are resistant to insects as well. As a result they may stand for centuries after dying, and weather like stones, from wind and water. Wayne Pinkston www.waynepinkstonphoto.com

Balanced Panorama, Arches National Park, Utah. This was from my first trip to photograph the night sky several years ago. I was going through some old photos to see if there was anything decent there. I found a few that were actually in focus!!!, although many of them were not. This one was actually in focus. I would not chose to use lighting this bright any more, and would consider these lights to be too bright. Now, if I use lighting, I try to make it so subtle that it is hard to notice (occasionally succeeding, lol). Since IG is not so good for panoramas, I am good to post this 2 ways, as a photo and as an Instapan video. Hope you enjoy, and may we all keep learning! Wayne. www.waynepinkstonphoto.com

Moonlit Hoodoos in Goblin Valley State Park, Utah. While waiting for the moon to go down I used the time to capture a number of moonlit shots of hoodoos in Goblins Valley. As it turned out I liked the moonlit shots better than the shots after the moon when down. With regards to the sky, the color is much more day-like, very blue with more cyan. It is so blue that it is harder to make it look natural. Cheers, Wayne. www.waynepinkstonphoto.com

Ancient Clifftop Ruins in the SW USA in the Four Corners Region. These were built approx 800 to 1000 years ago by the Ancestral Puebloan people, also known as the Anasazi or Cliff Dwellers. They lived in this region for many centuries, at times living on mesa tops and cliff tops, at times in small valleys and washes, and in later times in large cave-like alcoves. This structure is along a clifftop, the photo taken from a lower bench of the cliff. As times got harder in the 1200's due to drought and relative overpopulation, many villages retreated to large alcoves in the cliffs, where many of the best preserved stone villages remain. Many think they moved to the protected alcoves because of strife and competition for scarce resources. Ultimately they "disappeared" from the region in the 1300's, and are thought to have moved south, the ancestors of the current Pueblo People of the SW.

Corona Arch, near Moab, Utah, USA. There is Low Level Lighting (LLL) used with LED light panels with warming filters. These are turned down very low, barely identifiable, and left on the whole time. Basically this is an attempt to match starlight, and give some depth to the scene. Starlight alone is very flat and diffuse. There is a person in the foreground for scale. This arch is Large!

Table Top Hoodoos in the Bisti Badlands of New Mexico. Taken at 16 mm, f 2.8, 30 sec., ISO 6400. There is low level constant light on the foreground. This is not classic light painting, but more similar to modified studio lighting or "outdoor" studio lighting. It consists of light panels on tripods left on the whole time, very dim, barely visible or not visible to the naked eye. This takes time to set up. The light is intended to match the intensity of starlight (it does not take much!). This different from traditional light painting where you briefly shine a brighter light on the subject or near a subject. I have encountered several photographers at night that just about had a nervous breakdown when you mentioned light painting, but then became very quiet and cooperative when they saw the lighting I set up. I think we need a different label for this kind of landscape lighting, different from "light painting". I have decided to personally call this Low Level Landscape Lighting, (LLLL for short), or LLL, Low Level Lighting. I hope some term other than light painting catches on, as it just does not describe the more recent methods of landscape lighting at night. I doubt that anyone in a studio would describe their lighting as "light painting;. We just need some new language to talk about these methods more accurately. Cheers, Wayne
