Although it is brisk in winter, views such as this are worth the effort. This capture shows night skies near Moab, Utah, showing varying colors and dramatic light from the Milky Way, millions of stars, and nearby *development* lights. There is a horizontal layer of clouds, adding to the shadows and deep color near the horizon. I love capturing silhouettes, especially when the detail can be shown against a colorful scene such as this one.
Moab is a hot spot for photographers, nature lovers, and outdoor 4WD enthusiasts. Within an hour drive are Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Bridges National Monument, and Dead Horse Point State Park. Extend the drive to two hours and you can at least double the amount of intriguing places to visit. The vistas are incredible, whether in night, morning, or evening light.
