More from Royce how he got this image: "October Milky Way over Temple of the Moon - Cathedral Valley, Capitol Reef Nat’l Park, Utah. I photographed this last week with ONE exposure: 15 sec • f/2.8 • ISO 6400 • 24mm lens • Canon 5DM3 • WB = 3800ºK. This natural monument is 270 feet (82 m.) high, or about 27 stories .
LIGHTING: I used 2 F&V Z96 LED panel lights filtered to 3200ºK. They were left on during the entire exposure time. The left light was placed about 600 feet away and set at full power. The right (fill) light was placed about 500 feet away and set at 1/3 power. With some foreground features, you can dim the lights to the lowest setting (about 1/16 power), and this is usually enough LLL (Low Level Landscape Lighting) for objects up to 100 feet away. 600 feet requires full power, and is the maximum effective distance for these lights." - #regrann
