The story behind the image

Arches National Park is one of the really impressive parks in Utah, because it is full of stunning rock formations. While the majority of the formations are arches or windows, there are some other formations as well. For example, these Fin Rocks that can be seen and accessed easily from the Sand Dune Arch Trailhead.

We went closer and captured a more impressive photo compared to a tele shot from the distance. The blue sky contrasts well with the red rocks, while some high clouds add structure.
