Winter Sky Setting & Zodiacal Light (24mm 6D).jpg
The northern winter constellations setting in the west and the Zodiacal Light in the western evening sky, shot from Chiricahua National Monument, at Massai Point, 6800 feet, in southeastern Arizona, April 29, 2014. Orion is setting at left of centre, and Sirius is at the left edge. The Pleiades are just going down behind the ridge at right, while Aldebaran and the Hyades sit amid the spring evening Zodiacal Light. I shot this as part of a 300-frame day-to-night time-lapse sequence using the Canon 6D and 24mm lens. This is a 30-second exposure at f/4 and ISO 3200.
