After a couple of hours drive from Torrey, I finally got to Moab and had my first glimpse of Arches National Park. It was my first time to be there and Iâ€™m brimming with excitement. This trip has been the culmination of many months of preparation. I know there are lots of amazing things to see at Arches but Iâ€™m aware that I cannot squeeze them all in the little time that I have so I fixed my sight on shooting the Delicate Arch, the rest would be a bonus. The weather looks good and thereâ€™s an abundance of low-lying clouds which I thought makes for a very promising sunset. I visited the parking lot in the trailhead and itâ€™s full! I decided to wait and fortunately after half an hour or so I finally got my parking spot. Concerned about not having enough parking space, I decided to wait it out until 2 hours before sunset and set out for the hike up. Midway into the hike, I bumped into a lot of people looking at the sky as they went their way down to the parking lot. By this time, the sea of blue sky that I saw earlier was replaced by a dark cumulonimbus cloud. Talk about raining in your parade, I quietly thought but I continued on and finally got to the site. I stood in awe as I took my first glance at the iconic arch. Its beauty amazed me as I quickly realized its immensity and grandeur. As soon as I set up my shot, it started pouring. I scrambled to cover my camera and bag as the other photographers beside me did the same. I also noticed that there were just a handful of us left in the area who were still harboring the thought that a good sunset will magically appear out of the pouring rain before us. Moments passed and the rain finally stopped. A faint rainbow came into sight as the sky started to clear up. It was an encouraging sign then a short time later a thick band of capricious burnt-orange clouds crawled from the horizon and all I can hear was the shutter sounds of multiple cameras clicking away to capture the moment in still. It was a short lasting show that nature bestowed upon us but I am more than humbled and blessed to be there and witness that one magical sunset at Delicate Arch.
