Arches at Night
I recently went to Arches National Park to practice time lapse and star trail photograph. The star trails turned out okay. There was a full moon so there were not as many stars visible as there would be on a moonless night but the moon lit up the red rocks which I like.
The time lapse did not turn out as good. It starts out good but as the sun set the sky turns black. You can see the full moon rise but it appear pretty small with the wide angle lens. Obviously I need to figure out how to post videos with better quality. But I am not pretending to know much about making videos, just have an interest to learn.
I was hoping there would be a little light left in the sky to silhouette the rocks like the photo below (not the sky's fault, it was how I had the camera setup).
I've got a lot more to learn about time lapse photography. Glad I live where I can get to a place like Arches any weekend I like.
