Turret Arch Viewed Through North Window at Arches National Park

Best viewed Large on Black

 

The red rocks of the American Southwest seem to almost glow during the early morning and late afternoon when the sun's rays are striking them almost perpendicularly. They, however, seem to lose that glow as the sun rises in the sky. For those viewers who have never been to Arches National Park and who have no feeling for how big these formations are, the people standing at the bottom right corner of the window should give you an idea of their relative size.
