Image Details:

Circa: 8th May 19. That moment when you visit a place which you had only seen in magazines and articles. I was astonished to see the Delicate Arch in Utah with my own eyes. It was a different world all together. Hidden in nature's pristine shore, the arch was delicate against the forces of nature, yet grandiose in appearance. Then the darkness engulfed the landscape. A cosmic invasion. I stood still by its side, in the moon’s silver rays, and watched the magical unfolding of the astral world.
