Perseverance, Arches National Park, Utah

I had composed this shot of the iconic Turret Arch in Arches National Park utilizing this dried up tree to demonstrate the permanence of these components of the rugged Southwest landscape. Upon examination, it immediately became apparent that the dark sky (partly because of the use of a polarizer) yields ample contrast and therefore, possibly an interesting black and white image. Nik software‘s Color Efex Pro has an excellent BW conversion tool which I used to process this photograph. I am pleased with the results!
