View from Under the Arch
September 7, 2013
This is a shot from underneath the Mesa Arch - shot after having been there well before sunrise, but the cloud cover didn't give us the glowing red of the iconic shots you've seen.
Me, and 5 other photographers from all over the world waited for the sun to rise. One man was there from Sweden - he was certainly the one that traveled the furthest of the group gathered there that morning. After realizing that we weren't going to get the iconic shot we started to pack up and leave, But me and some of the others started taking different shots from and around the Mesa Arch. For this shot, I was "sitting" on the rocks at the bottom of the arch.
I hope you can see the formation in the distance that is called The Old Washerwoman (check this photo out in Xlarge).
From this vantage point, it's pretty easy to imagine that the structure in the distance does in fact look like a woman washing laundry on a rock.
Constructive critiques are welcome
Have a great day!
