While staying in Moab Utah. I had always known that I had wanted to photograph Mesa Arch at Sunrise. I had first seen the image taken by Peter Lik in his Las Vegas Gallery. It was about 28 degrees this morning. I left Moab around 4:45am, sunrise was set for 6:35am. Getting to Canyonlands National Park from Moab took about 45 minutes and then there's a half a mile trail to the shooting spot. I arrived to the shooting location around 5:45am and was greeted by at least 10 others that were already set up. By 10 minutes to sunrise we had almost 25 photographers, poised and ready.
