The Milky Way rising over Balanced Rock in Utah's Arches National Park, shortly after sunset. I know this image won't break new grounds composition-wise but my top priority was to create something visually appealing of an often photographed icon.
Blend of two exposures. One for the foreground: 15 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 400. Another one for the Milky Way about 10 minutes after the first shot: 20 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 800.
