Photographer's Note

Location: Mesa Arch, in Canyonlands National Park. This area of the park is known as the 'Island In The Sky'. This is a shot looking through Mesa Arch towards Washerwoman Arch at sunrise.

About the photo: This was my third attempt at this shot. Twice before I'd made the journey to Mesa Arch for a sunrise shot, but there were clouds on the horizon both times, blocking the sun. Third time was the charm for me. The sun came up and lit up the underside of Mesa Arch with the strongest orange glow I've ever seen on a rock. My photo doesn't even come close to capturing the brilliant color on the underside of the arch. The bright glow only lasts about 10 minutes, but it's amazing to witness.

Film was scanned with a Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED.
Levels were adjust in Photoshop.
