Delicate Arch by tourofnature Delicate Arch by tourofnature
The amazingly picturesque Delicate Arch at sunset. After about an hour hike you stumble into this amazing bowl of light and color with the not so delicate, delicate arch perched at one edge, behind it lays a beautiful valley and further back loom the La Sal Mountain Range. I remember feeling lucky to have the clouds hovering above the arch, it has been photographed so often that a bit of clouds can go along way for a bit of a unique shot.

This one is from a couple of years ago, reprocessed.

Canon 5D. 24-105mm. Circ Polarizer.
Delicate Arch, Arches NP, UT.

Thank you, it was my wife and I, and one other older couple, one of the benefits of going in January! I've been there a few other times and its usually a circus up there.

We were there in September and it wasn't too bad. There were probably 20-30 there. What a state Utah is!

It would have been cool if they would have stayed there as the sun dropped further to get some color, but shorty after this they kinda disbanded, I'm glad they were there during this time tho!

You'd love it out here, I'd like to see those shots if you ever do. Its a fact that I'll venture to Australia someday too, I've got some friends from the states who moved to Brisbane, they love it! Thanks Drew.
