Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Double Arch Star Trails” by jeffurbahn. Location: Arches National Park, Utah.

“On my first visit to Arches National Park, I knew that I wanted to capture star trails at one of the arches,” explains jeffurbahn. “Upon seeing the sheer magnitude of Double Arch, I knew that was the vision I had. I asked my friend to stand under the arch, wearing his headlamp and brightest jacket, to show the massive size of the arches. A half moon illuminated the Arch for me, and after 2 hours of shooting to capture the movement of the stars, I had my shot.”

Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Exposure: 30 sec., f/6.3, ISO 400.
