Sunrise at Mesa Arch

The classic shot of the sunrise looking through Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park in Southern Utah. The rising sun hits the cliffs below and reflects off the underside of the rock arch, making it glow a rich warm orange. Although it looks warm, at this early hour in the end of March, all six photographers standing here had their Winter coats & gloves on. But by 11 am it was T-shirt weather.
