Balanced on the Edge of the Arch!

Night time views in the desert are considered to be the best. Sometimes the light from the stars are all that’s needed to see the true beauty of the desert landscape. Beamed from thousands of light years away, the galactic light adorns the night sky with stars and planets and everything around looks all well balanced in colors, contrast and hues such as this Balanced rock in the Arches national Park. I remember no light pollution, and all I see was this magical blazing arch of our Milky way galaxy.
