Turret StarsCanon 7D, Canon 24-105 ƒ/4L IS lens, 38 sec at ƒ/4, ISO 800

This is the first image I photographed this morning … not the best starry-sky image in the world, but it was refreshing to have it be the first image I saw on the LCD Monitor on my camera. I only got a few star images this morning before the sunlight started creeping in, so tomorrow morning I plan on getting up even earlier to have more time to set up. I’ve always had a fascination with stars and planets, and really want to try photographing them more often.

Last night I made the trek up to Delicate Arch (here’s a photo of me and the arch) and I think I got some nice shots. Cliché stuff, no doubt, but still fun. :) I’ll be here in Moab for a few more days photographing at Arches National Park. This place is soooo gorgeous … I’ll have to start making the drive out here regularly from now on.
