From Mike about this image:


• Moki Dugway at Night •

Nikon D600 & 14-24mm @ 14mm
Sky shots: f/2.8 – 2×20 Secs – ISO 4000
Foreground shots: f/2.8 – 4×290 Secs – ISO 1000

Having never seen any night shots from the Moki Dugway, we decided it was a must-do opportunity when we were visiting the area last month. The Moki Dugway is an amazing graded dirt switchback road carved into the face of the cliff edge of Cedar Mesa. It consists of 3 miles of steep switchbacks at 11% grade which wind 1,200 feet from Cedar Mesa to the valley floor near Valley of the Gods. The dugway is part of the Utah section of the Trail of the Ancients, a National Scenic Byway.

This image consists of 6 shots to capture the sky and the foreground. We waited for the Milky Way to get in the right position while experimenting with different long exposures for the foreground. Big thanks to my buddy Michael Wood for operating the cameras while I drove up and down the switchbacks to get decent car light trails.
