Mesa Arch

After camping out under the stars in Canyonlands National Park, we woke up before the sun was up in order to see the famous sunrise at Mesa Arch. There were a few photographers already setup but nothing too crowded, so I was still able to get a good spot where I had a view of the valley below. The sun rises fast so you don't have much time here, but it really was a great experience and a shot that should be on every photographers bucket list.
