Love Rocks


During a summer geology field trip to the Colorado Plateau, my professor had his one-year wedding anniversary. His wife flew out to be with him and camped with him and the class for a few days. When we visited this arch, they posed for one of the students in the class to take a photo. I was on the backside of the arch, taking photos from a different perspective, and caught this embrace at the perfect moment. The way I processed this photo turned it more into a work of art than a photograph, but I thought that the composition was powerful enough that any detail in the rock itself was unnecessary.
