Here is another shot of Mesa Arch, but from a different angle (west end of the arch) to capture the "star burst" of the Big Star called The Sun. I got to the parking lot around midnight, and crashed until 0400 hrs, got to the arch around 0430 hrs...

This was taken mid-morning following a late winter overnight snowfall. The sunrise was cloud covered but about two hours later the clouds broke open and provided great sidelighting for the mist and fog.
