Flashback: Our New World (Milky Way Photo in Arches National Park, Utah)

Feeling like an explorer on a new world in Arches National Park, Utah, watching the Milky Way drift toward the south as night progresses. The odd rocky formations in the distance are the rocks near the Windows Arches and Turret Arch. You can see the headlight trail of a car leaving this area. As you can see, the archway is enormous, extending up approximately 104 feet (31 m), with a span of 148 feet (45 m).

Not all the places in Arches National Park that are beautiful are arches, such as The Courthouse here, as seen with the Milky Way arching overhead.Utah

Arches National Park in Utah can look like another world, especially if given a little push with some light painting using red gels. This is Double Arch, facing south, looking straight at the amazing Milky Way.

Arches National Park en Utah puede mirar como otro mundo, sobre todo si se les da un peque√Īo empuj√≥n con alguna pintura de luz con geles rojos. Se trata de Double Arch (Arco Doble), orientaci√≥n sur, mirando directamente a la incre√≠ble V√≠a L√°ctea.

Stargate – Milky Way Over Delicate Arch, Utah

A man from the Gujurat region of India by way of the Bay Area contemplates Delicate Arch underneath the amazing Milky Way, rising from the southeast and drifting right toward the south. If you stay still enough, I swear you can actually perceive the stars drifting, a special stillness that we don’t often have opportunity to experience. The glow beneath the arch is a light dome, but from where, I’m not certain, but I believe the camera is facing more or less southeast.

The enormous Рand rather unusual РDouble Arch made a brief apperance in an Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade movie. The larger opening has a span of 148 feet (45 m) and a height of 104 feet (32 m). This is a wide angle view looking over and through the larger of the two spans toward the Milky Way to the south. You can see the headlight trail of a car leaving the nearby Windows Arch area. I light painted the giant Double Arch with a Dorcy LED flashlight.
