Photographer's Note

Delicate Arch - Arches National Park. Utah, USA.

We hiked up to the arch on the 9th - a 1.5 mile trail (one way) with an altitude gain of about 500 feet. It was a beautiful hike... but the sky didn't cooperate. So we did it again the next day. We weren't expecting a sky like this - there were a few puffy clouds floating around. But as the sun set, this magnificent storm moved in - colored bright orange by the setting sun, with deep blue and purples hues behind. The rainbow made a fantastic secondary arch.

We hiked back in the dark. By then the clouds had cleared and the stars were at their best. The milky way was clearly visible. :) The sky never ceases to amaze me.

People are asking if my colors are real, here. When processing landscape images, my goal is to produce a final image that matches reality as closely as possible. The colors here are true.

All comments and critiques are more than welcome. Thanks in advance.
