Lee’s Ferry is at the lower end of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. An often over looked photo spot because of all the numerous other locations to photograph. These balanced rocks are right off the road. So this last trip over the winter, I made it a point to spend a night here doing star trails. Average temps over the holidays was 9 degree’s at night, but since this location was sheltered from the wind and at a lower elevation within the canyon, it was not near as bad.

First image was lit by moon light, the second after the moon set was illuminated by a Coleman Lantern. Each shot was two hours long.
