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!

  1. Hey Ron,

    Why is there no snow? 🙂

    Great photo .. I bet the hike in the dark was a memorable one, for sure – heck, it even looks like just getting out the window was a chore.



  2. Nice photos.. I am jealous, I just finished the Appalachian Trail and hope to visit some parks in the west next year. Amazing work… Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ron – if this is your quick and dirty – I am definitely not prepared to see something you take your time with. Simply amazing.

    Wow, thanks a lot for the nice comments!

    Congratulations on hiking the Appalachian Trail Kevin!

    Carl, there was snow on the nearby mountains, but that doesn’t count.


  5. Great shot. I have been trying to take more photos like this, where I have to merge two or more shots to get the range I need. This will serve as good inspiration!
