Park Avenue Guardian by Corvidae65 Park Avenue Guardian by Corvidae65
Arches National Park last March. The view is Park Avenue from below. I wanted a different sort of shot of Park Avenue than from the viewing area. Shot at sunrise the first morning. I'm sure someone, somewhere has this very shot in their catalog of Arches pics except for the sky and light. I don't think an inch of Arches has not been photographed by someone--much like other National Parks.

I'm coming to the end of the shots I will post from my Moab trip. There might be one or two more but I don't know. It sure was a lot of fun and a great learning experience for me not just in camera skills but in learning about myself and what I'm capable of at this point in life. I hope to get back there one day and get the rest of the shots I didn't get that everybody else has already :lmao:

I've got clouds in my coffee, clouds in my coffee! :sing:

Carly was always a favorite :lol:

You're right about the clouds--they were great the entire trip except for when they weren't :shrug: Which wasn't very often. I was very impressed with what the cloud machine put out. I was afraid of the dreaded blue skies that are often associated with the desert.

Thank you Alice :tighthug:

Just when you thought you had seen every perspective of Park Avenue along comes another unique one. Nice shot.

This is unique! And I get what you mean about just about every inch/perspective being covered by other photographers, but I think there is something to be said about getting one for yourself, if no one else. Plus there are so many variables involved as far as 'uniqueness' goes.

True, very true and you're right about the 'uniqueness' factor. not many people will have that sky in thier shots. It's an amazing place and I think a person could spend a lifetime there (much like Tom Till has) and not see, much less photograph, everything. Thank you :)
