Hi sb in ak,
Many thanks for your most welcome and kind comments and glad you like the image: it was a good time to be there and wishing you a good experience at Arches this Spring.
There's lots of great scenes to photograph at Arches, and it's a very busy, visited park in the Spring. The image was captured mid-morning, Sunday, May, 2005. The night before, I camped at nearby Canyonlands and got to Arches at dawn, which was good for light and shadows on the sandstone monuments. By the time I got to the trailhead to hike to Delicate Arch, the parking lot was almost full and many people were going up the trail. Getting there earlier is best.
My first visit to Arches was in 1964, when the area was a seldom visited National Monument, and I recall then that I was the only visitor that day.
