Photographer's Note

I spotted this nicefully tanned young couple at the Fiery Furnace overlook of the Arches National Park. From this overlook you can observe the different colors of rocks and ground covers. These biological soil crust that have different colors are alive. It is called cryptobiotic soil. This crust covers much of the untrammeled desert. Composed of cyanobacteria, lichen, algae and fungi, it combats erosion, absorbs moisture and provides nitrogen and nutrients for plant growth.

I have revised this photo per ZMey's critique. I adjusted the over saturation of colors. Revised photo may be seen in the WORKSHOP
