Arches National Park at Night

Just thought I would share a few photos from one of my favorite places, Arches National Park.
Most of us see it in the daylight, but here are a few views from a current project I am working on: "Arches at Night".

I hope you enjoy the photos, and I hope it inspires you to roll some wheels and go someplace!

How did you get that lighting effect at night? Looks like you had a giant spot light. Amazing photos.

Lighting on the light painted photos by a 15 million candlepower spotlight on a 30 second exposure.
Details of how it was done are recorded on the narrative of some if the shots which can be seen by clicking each individual photo.

Thanks so much for all the kind words about the photos!
You made my day!

You are all so kind and warm with your comments. Thank you.

There is narrative and explanations with many of the individual photos on my flickr site (https://www.flickr.com/photos/dsphotoscapes/) which let you know what the settings and techniques were to get the initial photo.

There are undisclosed editing techniques used in Photoshop and Lightroom that are a little more involved for color correction and lighting balance, etc. that have come with a lot of trial and error and experience since 2006 when I first ventured into more serious photography as SANITY from the Life Insurance and Investments business.

I have never taken a class, or course...I guess you could say that's just being geeky enough to read the manuals and run with it but it has turned out well so far! Several National Parks and people from all over the country have some of my works in their homes and offices, and that just makes me smile! (Of course the cash is nice too. :-D )

Feel free to ask questions...I will try to give you a straight up answer.

Thanks again for the comments!
