    Had a dream the night before that I was Alice from Alice in Wonderland, Disney movie and that morning it gave me inspiration to find a similar scenario for a photo scene. This was my previous job as a hostess here and I thought it would be the perfect seeing for a magical dreamland photo.

    As a retired educator, I have recently committed to developing my photography skills. In an effort to perfect my use of my new camera, I have been shooting loads of pics of family, friends and various outdoor locations. While in San Francisco in April, I noticed the street in the photo and jumped out of my car and photographed it.

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
