Galactic Peekaboo at Delicate Arch

The Milky Way's galactic center shines through the center of Delicate Arch one of America's most Iconic scenes. It is one of the most recognized landmarks in the world and is depicted on Utah license plates.

Here with a low angle on a rock shelf I set my camera and waited. Finally at 4:04 in the morning my awaited shot arrived with the core of the Milky Way, the very center of our galaxy framed through the Delicate Arch's gentle arms.

My complete lack of sleep and lugging nearly 250 lbs of camera gear up to the top of Delicate Arch was rewarded.
