Delicate Arch through Frame Arch

Sunsets at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park are like sunsets from Yosemite's Tunnel View - it's an image that's iconic and one most photographers want in their collection. On my recent trip to Arches National Park, I decided to try for something a bit different and decided to climb up some slickrock to have a peak through a tiny arch called Frame Arch.

I liked what I saw and put on my 16-35mmL with a Singh-Ray slim polarizer on my full frame Canon 1DsMKIII to capture this image near sunset. The red rock in this area truly gets warmer under sunrise and sunset light as the colder rays from the sun disperse due to scattering. This leaves the warmest red rays to bathe the already red rock and it is truly an amazing sight.

I will be offering a workshop at Arches and Canyonlands this November. To find out how you can join me and my partner Gary Hart, please click on my website link below, then click on the Workshop link on my home page. This workshop is already starting to fill, so don't delay. And yes, this will be one of our sunset destinations!
