Rainbow Down

Rainbow Down Art Print

Here is another view and close-up of a rainbow raining down on beautiful Arches National Park in Utah.   There were a lot of photogs out on this Sunday. One guy had a huge L lens shooting all over the place… I had to yell at him to turn around to get this before it was gone.  He did not even see it.   We laughed and he thanked me.   It was fun chasing this rainbow around the park to get diffient views of something incredible happening on the landscape.  Put this place on your bucket list, well worth the fun and journey.

Humans have occupied the region since the last ice age 10,000 years ago. Fremont people and Ancient Pueblo People lived in the area up until about 700 years ago. Spanish missionaries encountered Ute and Paiute tribes in the area when they first came through in 1775, but the first European-Americans to attempt settlement in the area were the Mormon Elk Mountain Mission in 1855, who soon abandoned the area. Ranchers, farmers, and prospectors later settled Moab in the neighboring Riverine Valley in the 1880s. Word of the beauty of the surrounding rock formations spread beyond the settlement as a possible tourist destination.

The Arches area was first brought to the attention of the National Park Service by Frank A. Wadleigh, passenger traffic manager of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. Wadleigh, accompanied by railroad photographer George L. Beam, visited the area in September 1923 at the invitation of Alexander Ringhoffer, a Hungarian-born prospector living in Salt Valley. Ringhoffer had written to the railroad in an effort to interest them in the tourist potential of a scenic area he had discovered the previous year with his two sons and a son-in-law, which he called the “Devil’s Garden” (known today as the “Klondike Bluffs”). Wadleigh was impressed by what Ringhoffer showed him, and suggested to Park Service director Stephen T. Mather that the area be made a national monument.

Celestial Stellar Dark Universe

A scenic landscape view into the night sky with the silhouette of forest trees looking into the stellar galaxy celestial starfields and universe. This was taken in Bryce Canyon, Utah.

Bryce Canyon is on the southwest part of Utah.   There is a back-road Rt 12 that is a scenic route that connects east and west.  It’s an AMAZING drive.  At one point you are in pine forest like Colorado, the next you are on the Moon… or Mars for that matter.  Mountains and desert and a whole lot more.  If you have never been to Utah, PLEASE put it on your list, you will be happy you did.

Moab is on the southeast  part of the state  and is only about 6 hours away from Boulder County, Colorado, there is a lot of incredible scenery to cover there for a photographer.   Dream come true for me would be to catch some lightning storms.  If you are a four wheeler this area is a Dream come true for you.  Utah is very camping friendly.  there are great inexpensive mom and pop motels all over the place. Every body is friendly too.  Looking forward to the next trip, because there is not place like it on earth. 🙂

This image is a color unsaturated version,  taken with a Canon 6D – Settings – ISO 6400 – 28mm – f3.5 – 25 sec.

Astrophotography Night Black And White Portrait View

Astrophotography Night Black and White Portrait View

 

A scenic portrait view into a black and white dark celestial night sky with the silhouette of a forest tree looking into a stellar starfield galaxy and universe.

Scientists believe that we can only see about 5% of the matter in the Universe. The rest is made up of invisible matter (called Dark Matter) and a mysterious form of energy known as Dark Energy.

Light from distant stars and galaxies takes so long to reach us, that we are actually seeing objects as they appeared hundreds, thousands or even millions of years ago. So, as we look up at the sky, we are really looking back in time.

Shooting stars are usually just tiny dust particles falling through our atmosphere. Comets sometimes pass through Earth’s orbit, leaving trails of dust behind. Then as Earth plows through the dust in its path, the particles heat up, creating the streaks in the night sky.

Astrophotography Night

Astrophotography Night Art Print

After leaving Scottsdale Arizona to see my mom, I drove to Bryce Canyon in Utah for some astrophotography.  I arrived here in the dark so it was a little hard to find the composition I was looking for to show a little bit of the Canyon and hoodoos. Here is scenic portrait view into the colorful celestial night sky with the silhouette of a cool forest tree looking into a stellar starfield galaxy and universe.

Forests dominate the upper altitudes of the Bryce Canon Paunsaugunt Plateau containing white fir-spruce-aspen forest. Bristlecone pine lives in the high limestone knolls. Ponderosa pine and manzanita dominate the middle altitudes. Forest health and return to historic density are managed with prescribed fire. Pinyon pine-juniper forest dominates the lower elevation areas of the park. Gambel oak, cactus and yucca punctuate the lower elevation juniper forest.

Hope you like.

Arches Utah Rainbow

Utah Rainbow

This is from our road trip to Arizona and back. Nothing like seeing a rainbow in a scenic place like Arches Nation Park in Utah.  The colors with the snow caped mountains in the distance, what a sight to see.  I chased this rainbow from a few different places, a spectacular view.

Arches National Park is a US National Park in eastern Utah. The park is located on the Colorado River 4 miles (6 km) north of Moab, Utah. It is known for containing over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch, in addition to a variety of unique geological resources and formations.

The park is located just outside of Moab, Utah, and is 76,679 acres (119.811 sq mi; 31,031 ha; 310.31 km2) in area.  Its highest elevation is 5,653 feet (1,723 m) at Elephant Butte, and its lowest elevation is 4,085 feet (1,245 m) at the visitor center. Forty-three arches are known to have collapsed since 1977. The park receives 10 inches (250 mm) of rain a year on average.

The national park lies atop an underground evaporate layer or salt bed, which is the main cause of the formation of the arches, spires, balanced rocks, sandstone fins, and eroded monoliths in the area. This salt bed is thousands of feet thick in places, and was deposited in the Paradox Basin of the Colorado Plateau some 300 million years ago when a sea flowed into the region and eventually evaporated.
