Delicate Arch Sunset • A muted mauve accents this Utah Icon.  Perched like a crown gracing the head of princess high on a slab of slick rock sandstone in Arches National Park is Delicate Arch. Delicate Arch is Utah's most famous icon and is the quintessential formation of Arches National Park, and one of the most photographed natural wonders of the world. This icon of the west was once known as "Cowboy Chaps," because of its resemblance to the leather leg coverings worn by cowboys. It is 65-foot tall freestanding natural arch.

The towering arch seems to teeter at the precipice of the slick rock canyons falling away below. The peaks of the La Sal Mountains in the distance grace the horizon hinting of a little alpine ambiance beyond. It is a spectacular sight. The sun sets in line with the arch casting a near-perfect light at sunset on both Delicate Arch and the distant peaks Sunset is the most popular time to shot the arch but really dynamic light can be captured at sunrise for those willing to hike up in the dark.

I like photographing Delicate Arch in April because of the better chance of foul weather and good snow on the La Sal peaks but many like to wait until wildflower season in May. This icon of the American Southwest remains as one of the most rewarding hikes and photo fodder destinations in the national park system, due partly to the reward of seeing the massive span glow a fiery red in the alpenglow of sunset.

Traditional Fine Art Prints • I have all fine art prints printed at Bay Photo, an internationally known custom color lab.  After printing, Bay Photo ships the print to me for inspection and signing, I then ship them along to you. This takes awhile, be patient.

I spec them on “Moab’s  Lasal Exhibition Luster” photo paper. This paper weighs in at a healthy 300gsm, ideal for gallery and exhibition prints, the new fourth-generation coating ensures the highest possible d-max and color holdout. With product names like Entrada, Colorado, and Lasal its easy to see the source of inspiration for Legion Paper's Moab brand. Created in Moab, UT surrounded by the endless red rock wonders of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the Colorado River, and the LaSal Mountains, the Moab line of archival, digital imaging papers continues to rely on that inspiration to design premium solutions for digital photographers and artists.

Your paper print product will come pre-mounted on 3/16" Gator Foamboard, a very rigid, durable, and lightweight backing that will not warp, the premium backing for fine art prints. Having messed up prints myself putting them on mountaing board you will appreciate the extra effort and expanese.
