Milky Way over Delicate Arch

Taken during a new moon night at Delicate Arch, the most widely-recognized landmark in Arches National Park. Fortunately enough, Arches National Park has the darkest skies in USA, which allows me to capture the dramatic Milky Way with slight airglow. I "painted" the arch with an incandescent flashlight. The hiker sitting underneath the arch provided a strong contrast of human beings vs. the majestic Mother Nature.
Location: Arches National Park, USA
