Pillars of the Earth, Arches National Park, Utah, United States

Arches National Park has some great formation. Most of all, I became a fan of the Manti-La Sal Mountains. They look wonderful, tower over everything, you can see them from Arches National Park, from Canyonlands National Park, and they add so much to the scenery. Really great.

 

Anyway, for one evening, I looked for ways to use them photographically. Knowing that the red sandstone just glows with the setting sun, I came upon this composition.

 

Maximum focal length I had on this trip, being my Sigma 70-200 in combination with my 1.4x teleconverter, f8 for the optical quality, and using my shiny new Gitzo 3241LS together with the Really Right Stuff BH-40 ballhead - an amazing combination in terms of stability.
