Delicate Arch

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. Scan of 35mm slide photo by Ellen Ritt

Nice shot !!!

I agree about too many pictures of Delicate. Feel free to remove mine if you want.
Glad I wasn't climbing in the LaSals when you took this one.

Re: Nice shot !!!

Jim-Yeah, it looked nasty in the La Sals that night, but the weather was done soon and the stars were out.

nice photo

where did all the light come from? Is that all sunlight from the set, or was there also lightning from within?

Re: nice photo

All light was supplied by the sun, the cloud was considerably south and the sun was almost down.
