Sunrise at Mesa Arch, II
« on: April 24, 2016, 06:08:49 pm »

Mesa Arch, in Canyonlands National Park (Utah, U.S.A.), is a window opening onto an abyss; looking through it before sunrise, when the world is pitch dark, may even be a bit scary. Once the first light of dawn starts lighting it up and making it glow in incredibly brilliant and warm oranges, however, and you stand behind it seeing the world come to life through this spectacular window opening, you feel like there is nowhere else you'd rather wanted to be.



Shot in 2010 with the PhaseOne P65+ on a Silvestri Bicam + Flexibellows. Thanks for viewing! Best regards,

It is beautiful. Did you have to clone out the other 200 photographers?   ;)

You guys must wear spikes on your elbows to keep the nearest photogs from getting too close.

Thank you very much everyone, I am glad you enjoyed it :D

About the crowd, when this photograph has been made (August 2010) there were about 5 other guys besides me; we shot the arch from close, and then we all moved out to shoot it from afar, and back close to keep working. I have been there again this February, and when I arrived there were about three guys; in 15-20 minutes, though, there must have been 100 people (!) shooting, walking around, running over the arch, you name it. It would have been completely impossible to shoot an image such as this... :(

Still, a wonderful place to visit and witnessing the sunrise there makes it worth it to endure the crowd, IMHO. :D

Thanks again, best
