Sunrise through South Window Arch

Arches National Park in eastern Utah, United States is known for containing over 2,000 natural sandstone arches including this one the “South Window Arch”. I had been retired less than a month in 2011 when I go out of bed, on a cold June morning in Moab, Utah to adventure out and make this image. I remember hearing about the crowds that can sometimes choke the park but early in the morning I had the place to myself.

I made this image on a Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro Tripod attached to a Manfrotto 322RC2 Joystick Head with a Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and a Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM SLR Lens. ISO 100, 10mm, f/22, 1/13 sec.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
