Under the moonlit night!

The true joy there is to stand on the cliff under the moonlit night is something very splendid. It’s in those moments, when the clouds stir and the stars are held still, joy overcomes the fear of falling. Everything around is soaked in blue and resplendent colors. Shadows danced when the clouds obscured the moonlight. And when this veil of cloud gets lifted, it would be entirely different scene again. It was the best experience I’ve ever had photographing Delicate Arch in Arches National Park.
