Relief - under the bridge
Owachomo bridge is one of many natural bridges in Natural Bridges National Monument. It is an easy stroll down from the trailhead and I had camped just outside of the monument and made an appointment to meet with friends at the trailhead for first milky way shooting followed later, after a good cup of trailhead coffee, by the sunrise. In the gallery linked here, you can find some of the milky way images but I ended up liking the sunrise images better as it was nice thin clouds with lots of structure and very soft light everywhere. In this image, I think the dead tree in the foreground provides nice contrast with the solidity and permanence of the rocks.
