(Moab, Utah) Some guy totally ruins an enthusiast photographer's attempt at capturing the dawn serenity of Arches National Park's North Window arch. Jumping photos take a few attempts to get a lucky frame like this one, and of course both dudes roadtrippn' must pose in mid air, so double the attempts.


What can you do, when you hope to be the first on a site to get a clear shot and the good light, only to find some jackasses lurking around as they got there first and are already celebrating their super scoops of the even better light half an hour ago.


The poor photographer in question can be seen in the upper right section of the arch; for once we were the early risers. Alas, the sun was already too high for him to get anything good so we probably did him a favor by bogarting his scene...
