2018—The Orchid Under the Arch

Light and shadows can be dramatic at Arches National Park.  Much of our time was spent watching how the light and shadows changed minute by minute and created new scenes and stories as the sun moved across the sky.  At Double Arch, late in the afternoon, the light reflected through the double arches made what looked to me like a giant orchid on the rock face.

The structure of Double Arches is massive.  If you look closely, you’ll see at least seven people, most at the bottom left of center.
