Mesa Arch Sunrise

At the peak of that 15 minute window where the sun casts a red glow under the arch.

I slept in the parking lot of the Mesa Arch Trailhead and hiked in the dark at 3:00am to set up the tripod in time for the 6:00am sunrise. The place gets crowded with other photographers and tourists during the 15 minutes of sunrise when the underside of the arch glows in a deep red.
