7-9 APRIL: ARCHES NATIONAL PARK

My plan for Arches was to photograph previously visited locations from different perspectives and to visit some new locations.  The first afternoon I hiked to Delicate Arch for sunset…perhaps the park’s most iconic location.  Of course on a Saturday evening with Utah spring break and Moab‘s Jeep week ongoing, a huge crowd…all taking turns one at a time under the arch for a picture.  Not much opportunity to photograph.

Delicate Arch Twilight. Nikon D300, Nikon 17-35mm, Singh Ray warming polarizer, Singh Ray 3-stop split ND, Gitzo tripod, Kirk Bh-3 ballhead. (c)Chuck Lockett Photography

The following day I photographed Turret Arch with an almost full moon at sunrise and Balanced Rock at sunset.
