The story behind the image
Arches National Park is one of the really impressive parks in Utah.
From the Windows Trailhead you have the opportunity to experience several stunning rock formations featuring arches or windows, and all within walking distance on easy paths. How much better can it get?
This photo shows the Turret Arch, seen from the east (i.e., from the South Window Arch.) I like this photo because the visitors appear so small, adding a natural scale to the image that makes you realize the huge dimensions of the rock formations. What’s more, the sky shows a few light clouds that add some structure to the blue sky.
