Maravillosa, puedo hacerme una ligera idea de lo que se puede sentir estando ahí, contemplando esa belleza natural bajo ese increíble cielo estrellado. Like y favorita. Saludos

How did you light this? Even whith a 30-second exposure, there is a lot of distance between camera and arch...a million candlepower floodlight would have a problem, and I don't think there is electricity way out there.

Greetings Austin, Here it is in a nutshell. I have five Speedlite 580 EX II, five Pocket Wizard Flex TT5, and two Pocket Wizard MTI. One MT is on the camera and fires the first burst. Then I use the second MT to fire four additional bursts. We also have two Maglite torches that paint the areas the flashes underexpose. You could smell the fried mosquitoes in the air after the shot. Each flash has a battery pack to ensure quick recycle. Hope that explains it for you. Cheers, Rich
