Mesa Arch in Canyonlands

Daily Photo:

I sometimes try to scope out an area that I want to photograph a sunrise, the day before, to know where the “sweet spot” will be. In this case I took the hike down to Mesa Arch right before sunset to guess where the sun would rise the next day. The orange glow of the sun was coming in nicely, so I grabbed a few shots through the arch with the snow-capped La Sal mountains in the distance. With my tripod just a few feet from the edge of a 1000 foot vertical drop, keeps you on your toes and ready for any unsuspecting wind gust. After photographing here, I hiked quickly back out to catch the sunset at Green River Overlook a few miles away. Those I’ll show another time. Check out my gallery above for all my daily photos.
