Hey everyone! Once more, I'm Riley (@rileybregar) and here's my last image that I'll be sharing today as part of today's takeover of @universetoday! Thank you so much for the opportunity to share my favorite photos with fellow night sky enthusiasts!
Straying away from the always-amazing Milky Way captures, this image was taken on a pleasant April night in Sedona, Arizona. With the nearby residences soundly resting, I was in a state of complete serenity this evening. While leisurely hiking this very popular trail, I took many opportunities to stop, look around, and appreciate my surroundings. Most notably, the early summer night sky was glowing as beautifully as I had ever seen. To add to the picturesque scene above, the legendary red sandstone formations of the Sedona desert were an obvious choice for an interesting foreground. Even more, the native desert vegetation that defines this area added an even more eye-catching addition to a photo composition. Lit with the screen of my iPhone, this agave turned out to be the centerpiece of one of my favorite photos that I've so far taken. The image is a great representation of my favorite aspects of photography: landscape, long exposure, and with the use of an ultra wide lens, successfully capturing a close-up foreground, a beautiful background, and the sky in one shot.
