Sunset Arch(About this image)
This has to be the most difficult photo I’ve ever taken. When I first visited Arches National Park, Utah, 3 months ago, I inadvertently took the wrong trail to the arch and missed photographing the sunset I wanted. 2nd time around I went to shoot another arch in the park in the late afternoon, upon trudging a mile through the snow to reach it I realized it was a morning shot, it was completely covered in shadow, d’oh. We raced back to the car and over to this arch, with time severely against me, I was dropped at the trail head (the right one this time!) and ran the mile long, mostly uphill path. With literally 2min to spare I quickly set up the camera gear and snapped a few shots. A truly elusive photograph!
