Revisiting The Fiery Furnace by coulombic Revisiting The Fiery Furnace by coulombic
The Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park. A permit-only maze of sandstone that takes hours to navigate. If one starts early enough, it's fairly easy to spend the whole duration of the hike in complete silence and solitude. Getting lost, and in the process, finding some of the most amazing views in the park, and perhaps the world.

I'm going to disagree with people saying it's oversaturated. I think it looks stunning.

Might have to hit the furnace next time i get back back to Arches. Last time there wasn't a guide available.

Guides aren't necessary. Go through it alone. Get lost, and enjoy it.

I should have last time. The park service had us all freaked out telling us that numerous people were stuck in there for days without water or food, etc.

Mark me down as one of those feeling it's over-saturated, ruining what would otherwise be a very nice photo.

Can't please everyone. The image, on my monitor, looks and feels like an accurate representation of what I saw.

Possibly oversaturated; I recalibrated my monitor and posted a revised version. Have a look and see if it's to your liking. By the same, as mentioned before, the colors in areas such as these, are pretty retina-frying during sun-rise.

wohooo, the saturation of these amazing colors almost kill my eyes :P
i would decrease the saturation by 20% and give it a tad contrast boost, voila.
otherwise an amazing capture mate! :clap:

Thanks, man. I recently recalibrated my monitor, and edited the image again. What is now posted is the result of the recalibration. In any case, the location is bizarrely colorful, anyway, particularly when the sun is rising (as it was).

I have to agree with phil looks a bit oversaturated. Btw. how long did it take to get the permit? ;)

coulombic Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011   Photographer
Nah, at this point, the colors are actually pretty dead-on accurate. Go there during sunrise, view this for what it is, and you'll invariably agree. No embellishment in hues, or values. What's likely confusing the eyes is the multiple white balance issues between the foreground and the background.

The permit is pretty simple. Show up, go to the help desk, and ask for a permit. You need to watch a short video concerning preservation of the area (cryptobiotic crust, preservation of solitude, etc.). Basically, go in the day before, pay the seven dollars, (or something like that), and watch the video, and you should be fine.

Thanks for the feedback. I hope that I will make it to Arches a year from now and find out if it really looks that blastingly colorful. :)

Also thanks for the info on the NPs guess then it won't be a problem to walk off path. :)

no way, i personally find the saturation still way over the top. anyway, you took the picture, you know how it looked like and to do the scenery justice.
