The Southwest Tour by Andy Sabol

I relocated from the Pittsburgh area to take a job as a medical photographer in Akron. Two of my loves are traveling and photography and here they come together. This show is of the Southwest, some of the places new to visit and some I've been to before.

I've always liked night photography, most of the time cityscapes. But this time I got to try my hand at starry nights. It happened that I was in Zion National Park at the time of the new moon. A perfect time and place to be. Even though the park was packed with thousands of people during the day, I would get up at 2 am to shoot all night long and not see a single person.
