House of the Ris­ing Sun

NPhoto - - Over To You -

A clas­sic view of the Mesa Arch in Utah at sun­rise has made it to our num­ber two spot. The tim­ing of this shot is per­fect. Firstly, the time of day you shoot this scene has to be spot-on for the sun to hit the arch and make it glow so vividly; and se­condly, the time of year has to be spot-on if you want to in­clude a dust­ing of snow that doesn’t cover the orange of the rocks. A lit­tle al­tocu­mu­lus in the sky lifts the right­hand cor­ner, while the sat­u­rated blues and oranges com­ple­ment each other per­fectly.
