- Description: One of the most popular scenes near Moab, Utah is sunrise at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. I left my hotel at 4:30am so I could be one of the first photographers at this sunrise location. To my delight I was the first to arrive and I picked out my favorite spot just as other photographers arrived. As the sun began to rise over the La Sal Mountains in the background, the rays of light hit the underside of Mesa Arch and caused it to glow!
I chose this composition because I wanted to include as much of the plateau below the arch as I could. There are beautiful mesas, buttes, spires, canyons, and rivers here and I wanted to try to include them all!
- Gear: Nikon D800 w/Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8 ED-IF AF-S
