Balanced Rock, Stars

Arches National Park, Utah, 2014

The great thing about photographing the night sky with a new moon is the darkness, making the stars beyond brilliant when the air is clear and clouds are absent.  Lighting foreground elements under such conditions, though, can be a challenge.  Before I made this image, I had been photographing Double Arch, where a man told me he once got "perfect" front-lighting on Balanced Rock from the headlights of a passing car.  When I went over to Balanced Rock a few minutes later, I tried a few frames with long exposures and with a couple different lights, but I like this one, in which the rock was illuminated by the headlights of a passing car, the best.
