Silent Dawn

Canyon Lands Moab Utah………….The Mesa Arch was my target photo for this trip, I wanted to shoot a large panoramic of the morning sunrise through the Arch with the amazing red glow created by the suns reflection. As it turned out the area was filling up fast with photographers from around the world and it was only 4:45 am. I knew that my panorama would have to wait for another day, so I acted fast and framed up this shot through the Arch to the canyon floor below. Now that I had the shot in my viewfinder the only thing I had left to do was wait for the sun to light the Arch and at just the right moment fire off a few shots. This has become one of my favorite images and a wonderful look at the beauty of Canyon Lands.
