Colors of Darkness – Rocky Foreground

Grand-Staircase Escalante has some of the darkest skies I have ever seen. The lack of light pollution in combination with very dry and clear air makes the atmosphere perfectly transparent and lets the starlight pass without washing out contrast. Under these extraordinary conditions a camera can capture the colors of darkness.
