Very much an extended day today at Moab! Following our Colorado River excursion we lunched an d rested awhile before re-entering Arches NP for some late afternoon photography and walking. The light wasn't great but, as in life, things change...

1. Towards Pothole Arch



2. The Deceased Near Double Arch



3. Turret Arch and Clouds



4. Monoliths



5. Double Arch and Visitors



6. Is That Light I See Before Me...?



7. Change Of Weather...?



8. North Window - What Promise Awaits....?



Catch up with the next gripping installment soon! Thanks for looking and comments always welcomed.

Best regards, Neil.

#3 - Absent the blue sky to contrast with the formations, this black and white really emphasizes the character of the place. As Ansel said: "With color it is all about the color, with black and white it is about everything else."

There is quite a different feel to this set compared to the others with the striking blue sky being absent. In #2 I think you've found a fascinating subject. I find my eyes lingering and exploring the tree and I like it very much. The light in #6 and #8 is gorgeous and including the people in #8 provides a welcome sense of the grand scale of the arch. TFS Neil!
C & C always welcome

I actually like this set the best out of all the ones you’ve posted as the light is by far the best. Having been to these locations last year you did well. Btw arches is in my top three of all parks in the USA.

Thanks all - the is something of a transition set towards some (to me) much more rewarding and interesting images from here.

I quite agree to the comments about the 'feel' these have; the overcast nature of the late afternoon definitely created a different lighting situation (perhaps not to bring the geology to life in all it's glory) but it made little difference to the temperature of the day - still lodged well into the high 80's/low 90's!

Thanks again and best regards, Neil.

Love these.

If I had to pick one, it would be no 3. The clouds really add something... and the mono makes it pop.

Number 4 is a close second, but makes me wonder if I might also like it better in mono.

Number 2 and number 7 are also in there.

Great work!
