Mesa Arch, Canyonlands

Mesa Arch sits 1,200 feet above the Utah desert, the Lasal Mountains in the distance. In winter–the best time to shoot there, in my opinion–those peaks sit snow-covered and veiled in evening lavender colors as the sun sets in the distance. On this evening, clouds on the horizon lit the sky even after sunset, illuminating the arch and the vast layers in the distance in broad crimson and purple brush strokes. It was one of the most magical moments I have experienced in the outdoors, and making a strong image was icing on the cake.

    1. Thanks, Jessie! Hard to beat Canyonlands. Dead Horse Point + winter morning sunrise = holding one’s breath longer than is healthy. 🙂
