The Devil's Garden

As we walked into The Devil's Garden part of Arches National Park at 6am, about an hour before dawn, I noticed how the dew on these plants, combined with the back lighting seemed to make them glow. So while the rest of the Image Doctors' posse went on to photograph Landscape Arch, I stayed here for quite a while.


A 5 shot HDR with some work to bring forward the grasses, but this is the shot I had in mind at the time. Just better.
