Arches National Park

Arches National Park in South Eastern Utah is a photographer's paradise. Everywhere you turn you will find new and wonderous formations. The subtle lighting of the desert and changing of the seasons guarantee that each trip through the park will provide new insight and photo opportunities. A true photographer could spend a life time examining the light in this small paradise.

Here I present a quick walk through the Park, and I encourage anyone wishing to undertand the desert to stop in Moab and to spend at least one day exploring Arches National Park.
