Normally, I post my images around midnight. Not this week! After three full days of sunsets and sunrises I’m pretty tuckered out. Catching up on sleep has affected the publishing schedule a bit. I made this image over the weekend as we hiked out from sunset at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. The hike wasn’t bad. Once the moon came up, you really don’t even need a flashlight. At the car we had a brilliant tailgate picnic under the full moon. While I was hiking out you could hear bats whirling about overhead. I began to think about the image making process. It’s beautiful, the entire process is. Sure, I guess the image is the end goal, but along the way you enrich your life by filling it with moments like this. In short, let the image take you places but make sure you enjoying everything along the way!
Photographer’s Note – I made this image with the Fuji X-E1 and 55-200mm. I brought the RAW to life using Lightroom 5.
