Delicate Arch At Night
This unique night time photograph of Delicate Arch was captured with the help of several friends willing to run around in the dark with flashlights. This was at the tail end of blue hour, after the crowds had already left for the evening. In the background are the La Salle mountains.
Delicate Arch is a 65-foot tall freestanding natural arch located in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. It is the most widely-recognized landmark in Arches National Park and is depicted on Utah license plates and on a postage stamp commemorating Utah's centennial anniversary of statehood in 1996. The Olympic torch relay for the 2002 Winter Olympics passed through the arch.
Because of its distinctive shape, the arch was known as "the Chaps" and "the Schoolmarm's Bloomers" by local cowboys. It was given its current name by Frank Beckwith, leader of the Arches National Monument Scientific Expedition, who explored the area in the winter of 1933-1934.
