Waiting for the Light by La-Vita-a-Bella Waiting for the Light by La-Vita-a-Bella
When we went to see Delicate Arch, we found about 50 photographers waiting for the light....all had staked out their position and were busy visiting with each other.
I chose not to stay in one spot, but to move around gathering different perspectives...including my fellow photographers. :D

Having seen your pic of Delicate Arch, I can see why they were waiting. But aren't human beings funny? :)

Yes, we are a funny bunch! I ran into similar situations at both Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon at sunset. I got up for the sunrise at Bryce and there weren't near as many people.

Very nice Paula,

This is a great document about a location shot like a trillion times. Maybe it is worth a them: shoot people that come to famous places, but make sure not to show too little or too much of the place itself in your shot.

This shot here, Paula, for sure would fall into that category. It is in itself a nice nature (plus people) shot with the sinking sun and all, and its composition is well executed.

Thanks, Ingo. I had already had my turn sitting amongst the crowd, but I don't do well with just sitting and waiting so I walked around and took pictures from different angles. I thought the crowd made for an interesting shot and made sure to get the sun just right. We didn't stay for sunset as we didn't feel like making the hike back in the dark, but we stayed long enough for me to get good light on the arch.
Our best memory from that moment was talking to two college girls who were sitting off by themselves with a bottle of wine. They invited us to their party and told us where they lived. It was a rather amusing exchange.
If you think about it....so many people have sat in that same spot shooting the same thing for a very long time. I can only imagine how many pictures there are of Delicate Arch.

Yeah,

And how many of flowers (my thing), water drops, waterfalls, and so forth as well, hahaha.

But somehow we manage to make each one look like a brand new thing, or at least that is what we are going for.
