Night-time allows us to experience the more tranquil side of the desert. The moon and stars give a depth to the sky and a sense of vast scale beyond anything that can be seen during the day. The quiet nights of Zion allow us to feel both intimately connected to the land, and feel the immensity around us. Join us for our nightly photography tours to learn how to photograph the Milky Way, create star trails, and take in the nocturnal side of Zion.
For this tour, we recommend a wide angle lens (at least 14mm for crop sensor cameras, 24mm or wider for full frame cameras) and cameras capable of shooting at ISO 6400 or greater. Without these, it will be hard to capture the full potential of nighttime images. If you have an interest in nighttime photography but do not have the equipment, consider our camera rental program which consists of a Nikon D7000, 12-24 f2.8 lens, and tripod (pricing $55).
NOTE: THE "LOOK" OF NIGHT TIME IMAGES DEPENDS ON THE CYCLE OF THE MOON AND THE POSITIONING OF THE MILKY WAY. Please click HERE to find out what to expect during your visit
