On the evening of September 7, 2014, we expected a full moon to rise over Arches National Park. We planned to get there roughly an hour before dusk, to get a place to park and get set up. Never in our wildest dreams did we expect a show like this! I mean, really? What are the odds of being in the right place at the right time to see this, a full moonrise, through the arch that would have been completely blocked from view by a rock wall from just about any other viewpoint.
Luck, it has been said, is the intersection between preparation and opportunity. Or, was it, inspiration and perspiration? No matter, I hope you enjoy my images from Arches National Park (Utah, USA).
