My latest travels brought me back to one of my favorite places, Moab Utah. I camped with my brother right in downtown Moab. Each morning I left at about 3:30am and headed up into Canyonlands for a sunrise shot. It’s an incredible place to watch the sun come up. Most of the time it was just me on top of 2000-foot cliffs overlooking the Colorado and Green Rivers.
This particular shot was actually a sunset shot at False Kiva. It is located part way down a cliff, it exact location is kept a “loose” secret to help preserve it. Off to the right of the picture, just out of frame is my brother patiently waiting for the sunset.
When the sun rises at Mesa Arch it bounces light off the cliff and illuminates the underside of the rock.
