This is a quick and dirty blend of two jpeg images, one for the sunset sky, and one for the rest. Once I’m home, I’ll re-work this, probably using most, if not all five raw files, but this gets me at least 90% of the way to the final image.
I gotta say, this was one of the tougher hikes home in the dark. A half an inch of rain had obliterated most the footprints on this lightly traveled trail, and it seemed like the cairns were just out of headlight range – the lack of a moon didn’t help. But, being able to spend a wonderful evening at this beautiful arch, with out another person within miles made it completely worth it for us!
