GHOSTS in CANYONLANDS!
When you go to Moab, UT, you will go to Canyonlands National Park. When you go to Canyonlands, you will go to Mesa Arch. Not False Kiva! (Some people don't like the idea!)
Mesa Arch spans about 25 meters and stands at the edge of the plateau, 1862m above the sea level in the Islands in the Sky region of the Canyonlands National Park.
Now again, when you are at the Mesa Arch, early in the morning, before the sunrise, you will see tons of photographers shoulder to shoulder.
Now again, after shooting Mesa Arch itself, you will probably wonder around if there are anything else to SHOOT! When you go closer to the edge, you discover the spectacular views over Colorado River gorge and some very prominent rocks in the valley 600 meters below. BUT! Don't jump off the cliff just because you didn't get those glorious shots with the best show-off quality sunstars!
Those prominent rocks are: Washer Woman Arch, Monster Tower and Airport Tower in the short distance.
They are -- "Ghosts of Canyonlands".
La Sal Mountains fill the horizon and complete this majestic scenery.
Story just goes on and on..
For the image I am posting, I purposely darkened and converted to black and white.. BUT up-close! I never get afraid of ghosts! Never!
PS: I am adding one more somewhat pleasant ghost shot in color.
The Ghosts! In dark!
