Excellent Photo Adventures…Totem Pole After Dark

With clear skies prevailing and a new moon setting before nightfall it’s a great time to work the night skies in Monument Valley.  We headed out to Totem Pole for a night shoot.  Positioning ourselves towards the north star and then putting it just off center we set up and light painted the first few images then set our interval timers for star trails…

Nikon D4, AF-S 28-300mm 3.5-5.6 VR

 

This was the first night shot I have done with the D4 (I have my D3S on the balcony back at the hotel working 24/7) and it performed beautifully as expected.
