Description

Famous Mesa Arch located in Utah, Canyonlands National Park. I have been hypnotized by this place for a long time, especially by the orange glow. I have seen thousands of images and never found an explanation of why the arch is glowing underneath (maybe I missed it). The angle of the rising sun is almost even with the arch especially a few minutes after sunrise. After a morning shooting session, I got closer to the corner edge of the arch and looked down. The wall beneath the arch is solid flat for approximately a few hounded meters down and than it's gently bending out at the bottom toward the canyon, so the sun is reflecting and throwing a glow on the arch.  Shooting the Arch in the morning, was the best experience in my photography adventure. Spectacular location and view of the canyon below through the arch window, is like out from this world. ISO 64 16mm F18 @1/10 sec One image
