Description

I was recently in the Canyonlands area, shooting landscape and had to get a few other angles of this iconic location. The conditions were perfect....90 degrees, partly cloudy with afternoon T-storms, and mostly clear to partly cloudy AM's. I got to Mesa Arch at 0430 hrs, camping in the lot ensuring I got the "prime" location before the other photogs got there. yup, there was a little unruliness between two other photogs, but cooler heads prevailed. I am calling this "Earth". The view from Mesa Arch during sunrise is both mesmerizing and takes you to a different world. This scene reminds me of my image of what Mars could look like or some other distant planet...but, this is Earth. This image was a 4 shot composite taken at different focal points at f/8 and exposed accordingly...then blended in CS6. Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8, CP filter. Mesa Arch - Canyonlands National Park, Utah. July 8, 2012. As always, comments are welcomed!! More images to come.... © Dejan Smaic | SportifImages.com 2012
