Lost in the Splendor of Goblin Valley

After I found this composition and placed my tripod, I went back to the car to grab my light painting gear. It took us 30 minutes to find this spot again when it should have been a 5 minute walk!

It is easy to literally get lost out here and once the Milky Way is up and you are standing among the hundreds of Goblin Valley Hoodoos bathed in starlight, you are emotionally lost and awestruck staring up at the sky without any regard for time.

I captured the Milky Way frame first and then we light painted each section of Hoodoos individually. It took 7 images to get this final shot. Next time I am out here I am going to take more care to have a lower ISO and higher aperture to get an even sharper capture of the Hoodoos.
