Coyote Gulch preview

Where have I been lately!? No posts since May 6th! I'm beginning to think I'll never catch up!
We just recently returned from a sweet trip with good friends. First was a couple days in San Diego to see family and friends, then a road trip out to Utah to go backpacking with good friends from college.
We ended up backpacking the Coyote Gulch near Escalante, Utah. What an incredible area!
This is the only pic I've done so far. It's shot inside the gulch where we camped for 2 nights. The rock walls are 300-500 feet tall... huge! The North star was perfectly lined up in the opening and made for a great long exposure.

30 minute exposure @ f/2.8, ISO 100. Canon 5Dmark2 16mm lens. Lit with our little campfire. :)
More to come later!

Blaine: That is one amazing photo. It would make for a compelling travel brochure to Coyote Gulch. Love, Michigan Dad

AWESOME!!!! Blaine, did it also take another 30 minute for the 5D2 to process it? When your shooting in RAW is the playback instant (5D takes about 3secs)?

Incredible shot, Blaine! Do you ever have problems with amp noise when you're exposing for such a long period?
