Landscape Arch

Landscape Arch is located in a remote part of Arches NP called The Devil’s Garden. The trail will eventually lead you to eight arches; it is difficult in places with a lot of scrambling over slickrock, and exposure to heights. We set out expecting to have plenty of time to make the entire 7.5 mile loop, but we had just made it to Landscape Arch (the third arch along the trail) when a thunderstorm moved in bringing snow and rain. I had just enough time to make a couple of exposures before packing my gear into my waterproof backpack to start the hike back to the car. Luckily we were only a little over a mile from the trailhead, and had sufficient wet weather gear to keep us, and my cameras warm and dry.

Equipment: Nikon D200, Nikkor 17–35 mm f 2.8 zoom lens, Bogen tripod

Settings: f 22, 1/6th sec. ISO 320

Processing: Contrast, vibrance, clarity, and saturation adjustments in Lightroom, curves adjustment in Photoshop.
