Mesa Arch Sunrise

Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National Park, Moab, UT, 84532

Google Maps Location video was taken from:

If it wasn’t for @adams39, who I just met the night before shooting the Milky Way behind Delicate Arch, I would have never got this shot. As us photographers know, when traveling, you are getting up early to shoot sunrises, out all day hiking to shoot some more, catching the sunsets and then staying up at night to shoot the stars. In addition, you are eating at odd hours and up late to work on and backup your photos. Let’s just say I never heard my alarm go off at 5am. Luckily, @adams39 knocked on my hotel door a few times and finally I rose. And because of that, was able to capture this stunning, beautiful sunrise at Mesa Arch. An absolutely breathtaking moment I will never forget, as us and a bunch of photographers gathered there that early morning.
