Simon came all the way from the UK to see Zion and I felt obligated to cater to his photographic whims, so I let him talk me into standing on that cursed bridge for the iconic Watchman shot
His suggestion to do it by moonlight was a good one, it actually felt safer than standing three deep on the bridge with cars buzzing by in the evening, and I think makes for an interesting way of seeing such an iconic landmark

All comments and criticisms are appreciated

I like it! Can you give details on your settings? How much moonlight was there?

Hey Bob,

Shooting at night sure sounds like a good idea. I know I have avoided shooting it myself due to the crazy crowding. I like your shot, nice work.

Great shot, I did it for sunset, but did this moonlight type shot behind the museum on one of my mornings.

Thanks Jack and Jim and
Ben - much easier sky to work with than the one in your shot

I love shooting in the moonlights. Especially in winter. This is great.

Lovely image, Bob. Amazing how much exposure the moon can add. Very nice.

Cheers,
Ed

Lovely - good ploy by Simon it seems! ;-) As an aside, can I ask how you're finding the 800 with long exposures - are you having to use LENR for anything over a certain length of time? I know I saw Jim say he's not having problems with white dots but I definitely got them with a 5 min exposure the other night, that was without LENR on.

Lizzie, this is only a 30 second exposure
Haven't tried anything longer tan 45s with the D800 yet

Ok thanks, Bob - just intrigued why some people seem to get them and others not... Looks like I'm going to have to live with LENR ;-(
