Mesa Arch Sunrise, Panoramic
This shot had long been on my list of sights to see and capture. With a long road trip from the Grand Canyon planned, I made my way to this now iconic viewpoint in Canyonlands National Park, arriving at the trailhead hours before sunrise. After a quick hike under the moonlight, and some star gazing as I waited, the sun broke through the clouds on the horizon and illuminated the arch perfectly.
Perched over the cliff side, Mesa Arch is lit from underneath as rays of light bounce off the cliffside below.
Standing back and taking in the entire view, I was the only person lucky enough to witness this mornings sunrise through Mesa Arch.
