As the Day Begins by tourofnature As the Day Begins by tourofnature
An image created almost exactly two years ago on what is now my most productive photography sunrise. I took this in Arches National Park and by this point of the morning I had already gotten some images I thought would be unique, in a frantic search to capitalize on these amazing conditions, I scrambled to the top of a rock out crop and saw these beautiful banks of rolling fog from a birds eye view.

Some of my older watchers may recognize this image, I posted a few years ago but I removed it because I wasn't happy with the processing. I dug this out and reworked it using luminosity masks and was happy with the improvements.

I'm still watching the weather in the Moab area, if we get a big snow-storm I'll get down there for sure to capture a handful of shots I've been scouting on my recent trips... so on that note lets hope for snow!

Happy weekend everyone and don't forget to "like" my facebook page for trip updates, photo tips, and anything else I find interesting. I appreciate the support!

Oh indeed I can see why it's one of your popular shots. Love the angle the sun is coming at, the fog banks..love what fog does for a picture, excellent clarity and color. Well done!

This has always been one of my favorites of yours. This entire series is the best I've seen from the area. I'm on the watch for winter out there as well and hoping to make a trip out there then. Doesn't look promising so far. I like the processing on this a lot, however there seems to be some color fringing on on the right side along the rocks.
