Delicate Arch is one of the most photographed arches in the world. But on this morning, fellow photographer Michael Riffle and I had the entire basin to ourselves for over two hours. Sunrise is not as popular as sunset because most people want the face of the arch fully lit. I prefer something different and slightly original and a quiet morning, with room to explore and glorious light, helped provide that. Shot in Arches National Park, Utah.
