Morning at Mesa Arch

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Pei Tang

I got up at 3:30 AM in the morning trying to capture a perfect sunrise at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. It was to my surprise that there were clouds covering the sunrise from the horizon. Many other photographers left the site shortly after the inperfect sunrise. I waited and waited until the moment when I could catch the sunlight reflection from the bottom of the arch AND the beautiful clouds in the sky.

Location: Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National Park, Utah, United States
