p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Moonlight Icons


I had a plan to get three icons by the light of last week’s full moon. Mesa Arch is the first, The Mittens in Monument Valley and The Watchmen in Zion. I got 2 of 3, The moon angle is wrong for The Watchman.

I left Moab at 4:00AM for Mesa Arch and was on sight at 5:30AM after wandering around for 10 minutes within site of the arch but unable to find the path even with a light.Eventually found the markers and got down.

Monument Valley was easy to do from my room balcony.

The Watchman required being there around 11:00PM, but the moon never showed up when I was there.

No intention here for showing the milky way, these are simply landscapes with moonlight.

Cool shots Ben. Nice takes on often photographed icons. That Monument Valley pic is terrific.

I like both Ben. Must have been a long circle trip!

As far as getting lost, I get lost all the time! Last time I was up there for a winter shot in fresh snow I could not find the trail. And also, slickrock becomes completely different at night.

Ben,
You did a great job here. I really like your second image. It's intriguing to see static and moving clouds on the same frame. The light is terrific and the stars create an interesting mood.

I Like! Especially Mesa Arch. The stars and moonlit La Sal mountains nail it for me. I have stumbled along that path in the dark and appreciate your dedication! Thanks!

Super series, Ben. The Zion shot may be my favorite. That is quite a trip for you, but I would enjoy being as close as you are.

Thanks Stan, an easy drive to Moab, 2 nights, another easy drive to Monument, 2 nights then stop overnight at Zion on the way home. Should have scheduled a couple week earlier to miss spring break. The shuttle was running at Zion already.
