Sedona Stegosaurus

Location: Sedona, AZ / Settings: F.9, ISO 100, 320 seconds

For a shot like this, you'll need a good pair of mostly dark-colored water shoes. After a few unnecessary scrapes and slips you will understand why - I use mine often and I'm always glad to have them on hand for situations like this.

I used a Canon 6D for this shot along with my 24-70mm lens, Manfrotto 190x tripodRemote shutter release and Night-Writer light-pen.

The main challenge here was lining up the shot and getting the colorful sail in the right place - which took a few attempts. I wanted the full reflection in view, so I placed the tripod and camera up as tall as it could go about 25 feet out from my new light-fossil - smack dab in oak creek.
