Beautiful work! I love the Arches. I only visited once back in July, 2011 but only for about 4 hours. Your images bring back fond memories. Thanks for sharing.

It is just to the west of Double Arch. I think it is called North Window Arch or something like that. :)

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

The trick with Turrent Arch is to shoot is THROUGH North Window Arch at sunrise, much the same way Peter Lik in the TV show "From the Edge With Peter Lik - on The Weather Channel" did.

Very nice, Mo. No wonder you like these, with such wonderful clouds.

Maureen, we should all be so lucky as to make images that are as good as Peter Lik's.

I think it's all about learning to see when the light is right and being able to capture the light.

Nice, Doug! Sunrise? We did that one morning at Courthouse Rock but the sun never popped out from behind the clouds :)

Thanks, yea sometimes the clouds or mother nature just don't seem to want to make things suitable for photography, you just have to adapt your shooting style or find a different shooting location.
