Later Afternoon at Arches – semi self portrait?


Here’s another picture we took at Arches late in the afternoon.  The colors get incredibly vivid – this is real, not any kind of photo manipulation.  I took this with a tripod and self timer.  Awesome place.

Farewell from Arches...for now

    • My Pleasure Siggi – you might want to paint one of these scenes someday – just need blue for the skies, red and orange for the hills and rocks, and a little green thrown in for the scrub brush.

    • Hi Patsy! Yep, we were at that awful place while you had the restful pleasure of taking care of “the family”.

    • Anthony,
      I can see it. It was neat just picking out places that got lit up by the sun and highlighting those in a photo with the rocks as a backdrop.
