Photo Of The Day – Up Close With Mesa Arch

Title: Up Close With Mesa Arch

Location: Canyonlands National Park, Utah, USA, North America

Description: Mesa Arch is a favorite with landscape photographers because it glows a beautiful orange at sunrise. The sun strikes the cliffs below and reflect their orange light onto the orange sandstone of the arch. It makes for a well-deserved ‘trophy‘ image. But I liked the challenge of finding a new point of view away from the phalanx of tripod photographers.
