Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada
I was exploring Valley of Fire, using an eBook guide, trying to find this spot. It's very obscure and I missed it. After photographing other parts of the spectacular park, I stumbled upon this by accident on the way back to my car. I immediately recognized it, climbed into the small opening, and got one of my dream shots.
Three images were combined using Nik HDR Efex Pro software. The resulting image was processed in Adobe Photoshop for color, contrast, and brightness with the help of Nik and Topaz software. The upload file was created with Adobe Lightroom with mild output sharpening.
