Delicate Arch
Delicate Arch was caught by our cameras on a glorious Utah evening in 2002 after a series of storms passed through the Moab area. The tourists were not dressed for this festive spring occasion and left when it got cold and windy and started to spit some rain. We on the other hand were prepared and had planned for the event, and remained in warm clothes, braving the winds, only to get this amazing picture. Ellen's camera took this one. A similar version from mine hangs in our house. We had the place to ourselves, too. This was one of those amazing moments in your life you never forget.

Thanks again. I'd say we were luck but only to a degree. I knew when it would be a good time to be there to get great light, but the clouds were a big bonus.

Drawers" was the local Cowboy name for Delicate Arch. Maggie was well known in Moab.

Amazing shot. Did you leave the shutter open for any period of time other than just a quick click?

It was an SLR camera with no special shutter speed involved. It was Kodachrome film, which explains the lovely reds. We still had enough light without having to get technical with the exposure. We were lucky. My wife Ellen actually took the picture.
