Urban and City
This image was taken in the Utah National Park called "Arches" - you might have guessed from the image :D It is a really great place to visit if you own a camera or are generally interested in ... life! I had never seen such stone structures before and was quite stunned.
I later found out that a while ago, people were able to walk on top of the arch that you can see in the image - but at that time, the arch was also way thicker than it is now. One night, when no one walked on it, there was a massive noise and half the arch just simply collapsed. Imagining that this could have happened when there are people on it makes me shiver, but since then, of course, there is no "legal" way up. You do however have the occasional youth that climbs up anyway and walks across it.
The title might be misleading! This image was the first that I edited using a software called Aurora HDR 2018. When I took the picture, it was overcast, grey, just a nah image. But after playing with it in Aurora I am quite happy that I was able to create a rather artistic look with it!
In case you missed the tour I gave around the software, here you go: https://youtu.be/XP1aJpw1lE0
In the end, I just added some texture to give it an old rusty feel.
Yoga is a thing that you can apparently do anywhere. Sasha here proves this concept - and just for the record, there is a good drop at the other side of that ledge! Well, ok - there is maybe a 2m drop or so, so it is not like she is hanging on the side of a cliff, but still... I would not do it haha. In any case, with the Irish background that presented itself, it made for a quite artistic shot. I am not sure right now what the place was called again... I hope I remember sometime.
