Moonset, Candlestick Butte, Canyonlands NP

In Canyonlands National Park a couple of weeks ago, Don Smith and I were able to get Don's workshop group in position to photograph a full moon setting behind Candlestick Butte at sunrise. Shots like this are not an accident--here's how we made this happen.

The pink hues throughout are wonderful. I've been reading your blog, and I love hearing how you go from vision to final image and learning about the technical elements that are involved.

Just magnificent Gary, as always. The colors are marvelous here at your sunrise shoot and the pink tones are really superb. Thanks to your wonderful framing here, It just occured to me how truly important a foreground element is in scenes like this, where we are viewing far off into a distant sky and open landscape. I am constantly in awe with the care, skill, and artistry that you employ in composing your images. And my eyes keep going back to those multiple plateaus at the base of the butte on the right! They are testament to the age and raw beauty of this place...Thank you for this Gary! Just fantastic!
