Three Sunsets In Arches National Park

Arches National Park Sunset
December 31, 2009

I spent three days in Moab, Utah and each evening I photographed the sunset in Arches National Park. Adjacent was the first night - just a few bright clouds over the rock ledge southeast of town. The rock structure on the right is known as the Three Penguins.

I spent a full afternoon visiting various arches including Sand Dune Arch, Broken Arch and Delicate Arch. As I returned to the main road from the Delicate Arch Spur Road, I noticed potential for a magical sunset. I "battled the sun" and came up with this creative shot. That pointed rock way out there is Ham Rock near the Garden of Eden section.

The sunset was unimpressive. However, the subtle shades behind Balanced Rock were worthy to display. Arches National Park, UT

Utah Sunset
January 2, 2010

On my final night, I was determined to capture something decent. This photo was taken as I stood on the edge of the Windows Spur Road.

Utah Sunset I then positioned myself at the Balanced Rock area and included this rock formation located a short distance south of Balanced Rock. So pretty!
Arches National Park I traveled south and captured some remaining light near the Rock Pinnacles. (Photo was taken while sitting in my car with the camera in front of my windshield.)
Balanced Rock One bad photo of myself in. I felt and looked like quite a tourist, and that's fine with me. May I never act like someone who has become "used to" these stunning desert landscapes!
