We were on our way to the Windows Section of Arches National Park early this morning. Unfortunately, the area was closed for road work. I understand it opens this afternoon.
So we decided to head back towards the Courthouse Towers to look for opportunities. I hadn’t explored this area before, so trying to find an interesting foreground in the dark, with a little headlight was a challenge. I was very fortunate to stumbled upon this little pool. The pool saved the morning!
This was captured right at first light. I have a similar composition captured a half hour before first light that looks very different. Maybe I will post it one day.
Take a look at our Arches National Park pictures.
