From Ralf about this image:
STACKED / PANO
«River of Stars»
I took this image during the 5th night of my night photography trip to the southwest in May 2017. I was planning to stay at White Pocket, but I caught a flat tire on the dirt road leading in. After changing the wheel, I headed back to Kanab to have the tire repaired. The final delay was more than 4 hours and I realized that I was not able to make it to White Pocket before nightfall anymore.
I therefore needed a plan B and drove to Gran Canyon North Rim. After miraculously getting a cabin in the North Rim Lodge and having my first shower in 5 days, I headed to Angels Window.
The sky was absolutely clear and there was a strong airglow, but also a crazy wind, almost blowing me and my equipment off the cliff. I doubted to be able to get sharp images with my tracker under such conditions and therefore opted for untracked shots.
Gran Canyon is one of the darkest places I have ever seen and while capuring this panorama I felt like floating between the starry sky and the dark and bottomless abyss below me. To be able record any features of the canyon, I had to push my camera to ist limits.
