There is almost always a photo op at this little gem of a spot in Gunlock, a small village about 10 minutes from our southern Utah home. (I think there must have been another photographer taking pictures there shortly before me because the yellow leaves on the rock were already perfectly placed for my composition!)
There are 9 certified 'dark sky places' in southern Utah where the Milky Way is clearly visible with the naked eye. Add a long exposure and a tripod, and the night sky becomes magical as seen through a camera lens.
Our annual family vacation to Lake Powell is always an 'adventure'! This year was not our best year with a broken and leaky houseboat, a broken ski boat, and rainy, cold weather. But despite all this, everyone stayed safe and the kids and grandkids always have a great time. And as a bonus, when I can photograph scenes like this, it makes it all worth while!!
