Photographer's Note

This is Wall Arch in Arches National Park. It is one of about 7 or 8 major arches along the Devils Garden Loop in the very northwest section of the park. Whereas most of the other major arches are located in fairly open areas, Wall Arch lies inside a fairly narrow passageway between walls of stone, and isn't really visible until you're right on top of it. It was one of my favorites, largely because of how unique it is. Most of the other arches have been smoothed somewhat by wind erosion, but Wall Arch looks as though big chunks of it were chipped away only yesterday.

This photo was taken late in the afternoon our last day at Arches. I adjusted the contrast and saturation slightly. This kind of rock doesn't need much adjustment though--the colors are quite strong to begin with.
