Delicate Arch at Arches National Park
We spent the last week on a road trip from Tucson up to Yellowstone National Park via several other parks along the way. We arrived at Arches National Park on Tuesday last week. This view of Delicate Arch was taken from the upper viewpoint about a mile away. It was created by doing an HDR combine of 3 images at -1 stop, 0 and +1 stop from the nominal metered exposure that would have been at 1/800 seconds at f/8, ISO 200. The exposures were obtained with my 75-300mm zoom at 300mm focal length. Note the person standing next to the arch to get an idea of the size of it. This is the most famous Arch in the park and is the Utah state symbol. Below is an HDR combination of three images using my 24mm lens with -1, 0, +1 stop exposures showing the general setting of Delicate Arch:
