Description

I posted this shot from my last trip to the Canyonlands NP located near Moab, UT. The picture may look isolated but by 6:00 am I was surrounded on each side by a large group of photographers from around the world. More keep coming out of the darkness as the premium time was approaching. I kept making room for others until our tripods were tangled together. I don't usually shoot in these conditions but occasionally it is kind of fun to get around a lot of people to share in the adventure of landscape photography. We were all fortunate to get the right lighting with just the right amount of clouds to allow for a nice sunrise with plenty of sun getting through to light this beautiful arch up which it is famous for. www.patrickdillonphoto.com. I posted a short video to give you an idea of the controlled madness while not a word is uttered with the silence only broken by the dozens of shutters clicking along with the photographers quickly repositioning for the next shot... https://vimeo.com/128208995
