Interesting Photo of the Day: Black Canyon at Night

Located in western Colorado, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is a popular tourist attraction that offers some of the steepest cliffs and craggiest spires in the entire United States. Carved out of solid granite, the breathtaking beauty of this scenic adventure is definitely not an exaggeration. From the dark canyon walls to the awe-inspiring 2,700 foot plunge into the Gunnison River, the Black Canyon is a photographer’s dream:

Captured by Aryeh Nirenberg, this amazing image is actually a mixture of 20 different shots taken from the Pulpit Rock Overlook using a Nikon D750. Each photo was shot with a Sigma 20 mm f/1.4 lens, 6400 ISO, and a 20 second exposure. Nirenberg later merged the different photographs using AutoPano Giga software to create a wide angle panorama.
