Sun of the Arch

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Jordyn Smith

After running up the side of a cliff to see Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, our family paused to take in the amazing view of the formation, along with about a hundred other people. As other families waited to have thier picture taken under the arch, I saw the shadow of formed by the arch as the sun went down, moving closer to the cliffs edge. I decided to quickly lean over the edge of the cliff and grab this picture at the perfect moment.

Location: Arches National Park, Utah, United States of America
