Delicate Arch at Sunset

Arches National Park, Moab, Utah

I was here a little over 4 years ago. This time around the sun stayed bright until it disappeared on the horizon to the right of me. The warm color intensity was very strong. I had to reduce the saturation level to -3 and it was still very saturated. In that respect, the arch itself is more spectacular than before but the sky was practically sterile and boring. So, this time around I shifted the focus more on the sandstone formation, showing that beautiful cross-bedding in the foreground.

BTW, the hike to that spot was not that easy. I huffed and puffed all the way up there for over an hour, taking frequent breaks. Of course, the camera gear I carried with me didn't help either. Next time I would consider hiring a sherpa to carry my gear LOL.
