View 430: Turret Arch Sunburst

I know many of my fellow photographers are finding this pause in our work a good time to finish off some of their backlogged photos. In my case, the backlog goes back to 2013 when I took a trip to the Western United States. The advantage I have today in processing these older photos is I use better software in Adobe Lightroom Classic and hardware with an Apple MacBook Pro 16 then I did seven years ago.

Here is a photo of Turret Arch in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. I broke the rule that says do not photograph directly into the Sun. Well, with a Sigma 15mm Fisheye lens stopped down to f/22 created a huge sunburst over the arch.
