On this particular night I walked down into the canyon because I wanted to capture the canyon walls and the Milky Way in one photograph. I decided to use a fisheye lens because it created an interesting curved effect of the canyon walls and allowed for a broad area of coverage. To light up the canyon walls, I painted them with a tungsten -balanced flashlight for 20 seconds.

Two nights prior, I was standing at the rim of the canyon. A wide-angle lens with a fast aperture is ideal for night photography of the stars so I chose the Canon 15mm f/2.8 fisheye. The fisheye lens’ extreme coverage allowed me to include the huge arch of the Milky Way with a tree. The greenish tint in the sky that the camera captured is called airglow but is too faint for the naked eye to see.
After shooting the stars and a little sleep, I headed out to capture a sunrise. I love the way the warm morning light wraps itself around each hoodoo.

Settings: Bryce Canyon National Park, UT. Photographed with Canon EOS 5D Mark III and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens at 19mm, 1/4 seconds to 1/100 second @ f/16, ISO 100.
I bracketed the five photographs with one f-stop increments except, I only used 2/3rd a stop on the last frame. I combined the images using Adobe® Photoshop® software.

On another shoot in Bryce Canyon, I photographed the canyon walls that glowed in the sunrise light. When photographing landscapes, remember to go out at night and shoot the stars!

Photography Tip:

To photograph the Milky Way, go out around the new moon and use a wide-open aperture of at least f/2.8, an exposure from 15 to 25 seconds and ISO 6400 to get a good exposure of the dark sky.
