THIS IMAGE WAS MADE ON THE ANCIENT AND SACRED NAVAJO LANDS IN THE VALLEY OF THE GODS, S.E. UTAH, ON THE NIGHT OF THE 2012 SUMMER SOLSTICE WITH RARE MOONLESS AND CLOUDLESS CONDITIONS. USING A CANON 5D MK II AND A 24-70mm f2.8 L LENS, MOUNTED ON A MANFROTTO CARBON FIBRE TRIPOD AND EXPOSED FOR 56 MINUTES, THIS IMAGE CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF THE NAVAJO PEOPLE RELEASED TO THE CENTER OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM - POLARIS. THEIR PRAYERS ARE REPRESENTED BY THE STAR TRAILS.

Location: VALLEY OF THE GODS, S.E. UTAH
