When I was leaving for Zion the weather forecast called for thunderstorms and mostly cloudy skies, and for most of my trip this remained to be true. I was so discouraged but whst can you do? Finally after waiting 3 days I got clear skies. I arrived to this iconic location at dusk and waited for the stars to come out. Such a difficult place to shoot. Constant cars driving by, even at 12am. Then dealing with the crowd of photographers who didn't know how to be courteous, flashing there bright red lights all over, thinking it dosen't affect peoples shots but it does. Also whenever your shooting, give a heads up and ask kindly to the group if anyone's shutters still open before you turn your 1000 candle power torch on. Then there's always that 1 annoying know-it-all guy, (we've all delt with) who wouldn't shut up. Talking in photography slang and thinks he's Ansel Adams and knows everything. No one cares that you know every detail about photography, we don't think your cool. It wasn't a pleasant experience but I came away with something I'm happy with. I shot the foreground with a 2 minute exposure and the sky with a 15 second exposure then blended them.
