Ended up borrowing a friend's Sigma 18-35mm 1.8. It wasn't quite ideal as I couldn't go full wide with it without severe vignetting on my full frame (most of my shots were 24mm+) but it worked out and I didn't have to shell out a ton.

From about 20 yards away from my tent in the campground picture. The Rio Grande can be amazingly beautiful in spots.

Love that place. I wish I knew how to use a camera besides my iPhone. Looks like a blast. I camped on the banks of the river in 2017. Good times

Brings back memories. I backpacked to the South Rim a total of 14 times in my younger days. Photographers dream. A target rich environment. Would love to do it again but 71 year old knees and hips dictate a step back. Many a cigar smoked while sitting on that rim looking 150 miles into Mexico.

This one was cool because it looks like it is sunrise lighting up the mountains, but it's actually the light of the setting moon that is casting all of the light on the horizon.

We did a 4 day 3 night trip. Truck camped the first night down some 4x4 only trails, then we backpacked to the Northeast Rim and stayed at a couple of primitive campsites.

Same camera for both - Canon 5D Mark III
Daytime Lenses - mostly either the Canon 24-70f4
Nighttime Lenses - mostly the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 (not recommended on a full frame Canon, but that's all I had)

Nice coverage Tyler. Wife and I went the last week of November last year. I regret no night sky photos taken on my end. People shouldn't wait as late in life as I did to go out there. Big Bend is a Texas treasure.
