Night skies in Grand Canyon National Park

September 4th 2015 - 

I shot in Grand Canyon as part of a time lapse movie in September 2015. Grand Canyon, being an International Dark Sky site, has extremely dark skies. It was very very dark and windy. I setup my cameras(6D and 70D) right next to each other and stood guard to protect against the mighty winds. It had an eerie feel to it with the darkness, a sky full of stars, the insect sounds and a canyon a mile deep centimeters from me.

A cop stopped by to check if I was spending the night at the lot and felt ashamed that he was actually screwing up my shots. The nice guy, then, wished me luck and told me I could stay as long as I wanted to The respect for night sky photographers wherever I go is unbelievable
