Greetings Steve, Thanks for the visits and the comments. We used a lot of fire power to light the Double Arch. A ranger stopped in to see what in the world we were doing. Glad you like the result. I need to figure out how to reduce the blowout from the flash position. Got a few trip. Cheers, Rich

I hear you Rich, quite often the planning for the lighting takes the longest :) There are so many options available!! Keep em' coming :)

Greetings Steve, Thanks for the visit. I hope to go to Canyon Lands in a month or so to try a night shot at Mesa Arch. It should be fun. Take care. Cheers, Rich

Hi Rich,

The last time we were in the US we visited Grosvenor Arch along the Cottenwood Canyon road...... that would be a good spot for some 'light painting / astro work :)

We are over there again in a couple of months, mainly northern states this time though.

Take care..... Steve

Greetings Steve, So nice to hear from you. Hope the summer was good to you down there. The first day of spring here is amazing. We should have flowers very soon. Wow, I haven't been in Cottonwood canyon for 25 years. I remember the skiing at Snowbird was amazing and the trees at Alta an adrenalin rush. What northern states? We will be in Montana and Alberta end of June and start of July. Doing glaciers and railroad lodges. Take care and have a great day. Cheers, Rich

Cheers Rich, The US in springtime..... sounds awesome :)

There are a few definites in life and the Australian summer being hot is one of them Rich :) (especially up here in the Pilbara)!!

We arrive in the US around mid July and spend the first few days in DC doing the cultural thing. We then head-off to Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota but will spend most of our time around Yellowstone and Grand Teton (they both look amazing).

We've then got a few days in Southern California before heading home.

Counting the days mate!!!

I'd better get off to work I suppose..... cheers.... Steve

Greetings Steve, Sounds like a wonderful holiday in store for you. I don't know if you have made lodging arrangements yet. If you are going to stay in the Teton Park, go for the Coulter Bay cabins. We love them. They are a short walk from everything in the area. I like staying in the old part of the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone. It is a throwback to an earlier era. The bathroom is down the hall!!! It is a hoot. Take care and have a good time at work. Cheers, Rich

Hello again Rich,

Lodging is all booked mate..... my wife is very efficient :)

In Teton we are staying at Signal Mountain Lodge on Jackson Lake. In Yellowstone we are staying at three different spots spread out across the park; Lake Lodge, Old Faithful Lodge and Canyon Lodge.

Works finished for a few days now, I am back home in Perth for some well-earned R&R...... whooooohooo :)

Cheers Steve

Greetings J-ryu, Thanks for the visit and the comments. It's quite a production getting the equipment in place to take the shot, But it is fun and worth the effort. So nice when no one else is around. Cheers, Rich

Absolutely beautiful!!! like 21 Best wishes and friendly greetings, Conny

Richard Ryer on June 19

Greetings Conny, Thanks for the visit and the comments, It is tough getting the rock formations well illuminated at night. It is very large and it takes a lot of flash and flashlight. I have some more ideas on how to improve my results. I will have to go back again to try them out. Cheers, Rich
