Mesa Arch in the Canyonlands NP in Utah is one of the most spectacular spots of the Desert Southwest and for good reason. Pictures don't do the actual show any justice. It is just awe-inspiring to witness the underside of the naturally formed arch starting to glow, minutes before the actual sunrise over the La Sal Mountains.
I kept coming back to this shot, trying to recreate the feeling I had standing in front of this surreal, yet completely natural phenomenon in the middle of the desert. My initial edit lacked interest and seemed flat overall, I think this version is a much closer depiction of the event and my personal search for my emotion-evoking Mesa Arch shot came to a successful end.
