Welcome back to beautiful Canyonlands National Park near Moab Utah with the NxNW Crew. I thought I would present a couple of variations of this beautiful place and share some shots of the crew at Mesa that morning, what a morning it was. The shot above was using my Canon  8-15mm Fish-eye, handheld 5 exposures, I was literally laying down right in front of the arch opening, and this is not a small arch, this lens is amazing on a Full Frame camera! The shot below was taken after the sun hit the peak in the arch (the famous starburst in the arch shot), the glow inside is just incredible when the magical light starts evolving and changing at sunrise…it really is magical, the colors and light change by the minute even after the “Money Shot”. Now, I thought I would share some shots of the crew below, enjoy!
