It was an eventful day during my driving trip through Arizona and Utah.
I woke up early in the morning in Bluff (Utah). I drove straight away to the Valley of the Gods with the goal to capture the morning light.
I made a quick stop at Goosenecks State Park where I photographed unforgettable curves of San Juan River.
After a short drive with the 10 min stop at Forest Gump Point, I was in the Monument Vally where I spend the majority of the day exploring the park.
I was on my way to my final destination of the day the Horseshoe Bend where I was planning to be at a sunset hour.
In the middle of a beautiful 2-hour drive from the Monument Valley to the Horseshoe Bend, I stumbled upon the Square Butte. I only had time for a brief stop and 10 min walk, but I still got rewarded with the few interesting photos.
It was uncomplicated shot. I took 3 bracketed shots from the side of the road in Aperture Priority mode, handheld. That was it.
First, I used the Crop Overlay tool to straighten the photo and to make composition a bit tighter. I used the process I outlined in the article: How to Straighten a Photo in Lightroom.
