Moab Evening Sky

In late July of 2011 we got to spend some time in the desert of Arizona and Utah.  The wide expanses and amazing geography was a blast to photograph.  I'm just now coming back to many of these images and realizing  what I have.  Sometimes I shoot photos and process them right away and things work out really well.  Other times it takes a while for me to get my act together and get immersed or re-immersed in the images.  This is one of those cases.  I think we saw so many amazing things it's literally taken a year for it all to sink in.  That probably sounds silly but I've spent time almost every night recently working on some of these photos and really enjoying it.
This shot is a pano of a sunset in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.  Moab itself is such a cool town and was a nice little surprise.  Our itinerary didn't initially include Moab but it was one of the cooler towns we stopped at during our two weeks on the road.  Anyway, this shot is a view right inside the park.  The sun was setting so I didn't have much time to find something interesting and get setup.
Even shot with a wide angle Canon 10-22 I felt like I had to stitch a few frames together to give a sense of just how wide this place felt to me.  The aspect ratio I chose here fits the wideness I was seeing standing there, I think.  Hope you like it.
