|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is Landscape Arch, the world's longest known free-standing arch at nearly 300 feet across. I got this shot right before the Park Service closed the walking trail that led to this perspective behind the arch looking out toward the desert. The reason was because a six-foot chunk of rock peeled off from the left side...where the chink is...and the Park deemed it unsafe. It's amazing this arch could form and withstand gravity for so long. It won't last forever, so see it while you can.|

Interesting place. Nice composition, colors, good detail and light
Hello Ted Alan! Wonderful rocks, wonderful landscape. Original colors. Very good lightness. Amazing capture. Good shot. Well done!
I recognized this immediately as Landscape Arch... but your note explains why I didn't recognize the view point. It is wonderful. I'm sorry I missed seeing this arch from that angle. I had to photograph it from the other side and fight the sun doing it. Thanks for posting this nice image. I love the way the arch frames the desert.
