14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Glow under Mesa Arch during Sunrise at Canyonlands National Park
Always wanted to capture this iconic location with a panoramic view instead of going Ultra wide. I was here on Day 1 at 4:30 AM to see 10 Tripods set a perfect spot where I wanted. Day 1 clouds did not give the right exposure to light the belly and give the classic sunburst look. So I went on Day 2 at 3 AM to this location with sunrise at 6:45 AM. Finally got what I wanted and standing at the right spot with the valley and hoodoos. It was a one of a kind magical experience to shoot as well as stand in awe watching it in person.
