Delicate Arch and Photographer

This is the basin upon the edge of which rests Delicate Arch, in Arches National Park (the arch you see on Utah's license plate). Yes, I'm wearing my trademark floppy hiking hat.


Here's a neat trick I recently learned to make contrast and colors pop in Photoshop. Create a levels adjustment layer. Don't make any actual alterations except changing the blend mode to Overlay. Bang! You might have to tone it down (as I did in this shot) by reducing the opacity of the layer. Quick and easy, no expensive filters necessary.
