Mesa Arch Sunrise, Canyonlands National Park

    Newer Older

    On the last morning of our roadtrip through the southwest, we went to the Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park to see the famous red glow of the arch at sunrise. I was initially hesitant to go to this location because I didn't see what made it special. The gorgeous red glow aside, everyone gets mostly the same shot and that's that.

    Well it's truly a beautiful arch at sunrise and I got sucked in once I saw the colors that morning. Some times, it's ok shooting the icons. That said, I want to push myself to create beautiful and creative landscape photography. Thank you for viewing!, Innah Wulandari, wan*, and 761 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Yes it is during sunrise! You'll be sure to have a good time there, but you might want to go extra early because it fills up quickly. Better yet, camp near the arch!

      Hi Ryan!
      Our camp was 5 min. from the parking lot (Willow Falt Campground) of the arch. We went out of bed at 04:30 AM - to be sure!! :-)
      We where only 10 photgraphers at the arch - it was amazing!

      Here my result:
      Mesa Arch - Sunrise

      Ui!! ...btw...: same Cam!! ;))
