Morning Glory

The shoot of an Iconic photo of the Mesa Arch during the sunrise for my personal portfolio has been a big challenge to me. The photo was in my mind since my departure from Italy. Such day I was worried, nervous, thrilled and deadly late. After an early morning 60km reckless car drive, and a final rush on stones, sand, and plants, running, with my whole gear on my back, I've found the spot completely overcrowded, I had to sit down between two other kind photographers and shoot freehand because there wasn't place for my tripod. Failure wasn't an option. Hope I've got my picture.
