The Story

This one is for people who love to look at life from a different angle.

This shot along with “Sunrise at Mesa Arch”, was taken on my first photo-dedicated vacation. We slept, ate, and lived based around where and when we would get our best shots.

While visiting Canyonlands National Park in Utah, beautiful shots were all around us. So many, I had to make a list outlining my exact shots! This one however was not on my list. While photographing the sunrise, along with the sea of other people getting a similar shot, I looked up and saw something different. A unique shot. One no one else seemed to see.

I moved through the crowds, set up my camera, and shot this photo. A unique perspective of one of the most commonly photographed shots in the country. I still got the beautiful sunrise and magnificence of the arch, but a unique view of it all.
