In a Castle Dark or a Fortress Strong (Arches National Park)

A portion of lyrics from a song I'd heard (and definitely sang!) many a time by Gordon Lightfoot. So as I read about the description of the Turret Arch, I couldn't help but hum the words, seeing it did somewhat have a look of a castle with the one sandstone spire as a turret. While I did capture a few images without the "ant-like" people here I kept one as a way of showing perspective but with the way the blue tapered off to the bottom, it also brought out something extra with that lone person. I used an Open Shade recipe in CEP 4 after doing initial processing in Capture NX2.
