As Darkness Falls by ColinHSillerud As Darkness Falls by ColinHSillerud
First off, sorry to all of my groups, each of my watchers, and everyone I follow. I have been extremely busy in other areas of my life so I have not been able to keep up on DA. Hopefully I will have more time in the future.

However, here is some new work!

An epic spot I found on the Grand Canyon. The road was about gone so I imagine it's been years since anyone has visited. However, to break the peace, helicopters provided reminders of man every 15 minutes. I made it a point to pretend to go to the bathroom for every flight.

I shot the foreground 20 min prior to the sky because it was too windy to do a ~4 min exposure at f9 when the Milky Way was out.

Also, the sky is blue rather than black because this was literally the first moment that the Milky Way was visible. So a hint of the setting sun remained to color the dust in the air.
