DELICATE ARCH OVER DELICATE ARCH

276 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Delicate Arch, Arches National Park, Utah

Arches National Park is a magical place. It was here years ago that I first began to develop my skill in creating Ultra High-Resolution Imagery. On most days the art of Ultra High-Resolution Imagery is an immensely advanced, challenging, and technical photographic discipline. But Arches National Park can sometimes make it “easy.” Easy in that, if all other conditions are favorable, rocks tend not to move. They’re relatively cooperative subjects sitting calmly and quietly while you practice getting better at your craft.

On this particular day in Arches, years after getting those fundamentals of Ultra High-Resolution Imagery nailed down, I was set up in a familiar spot overlooking Delicate Arch. Familiar spot to me, but not to most. Having a propensity for being off-trail has provided me the opportunity to photograph from vantage points generally not utilized by others. And when faced with photographing an icon such as Delicate Arch, it’s always the challenge to see it somehow differently. So, even though I had photographed this very scene several times prior, who knows, today something magical might happen.

Something magical did happen.

I have a friend that has a saying applicable to another arena of life, but I think it can be applied to photography as well. He says, “Just show up!” And sometimes in photography, all you have to do is just show up, and sometimes show up, and show up, and show up, and …

Title Origin. The iconic Delicate Arch acquired its name due to it being precarious in its formation. One day, due to erosion, it may not be with us any longer. But Delicate Arch’s delicateness is nothing like the clouds that temporarily arched the icon this day. I had to work fast, and within minutes, the clouds were gone. One delicate arch gone, another one with us for now to be enjoyed. I initially thought of titling this piece Double Arch, but that name was already taken. Those familiar with Arches National Park will get that.

Thanks ... and thanks again,

David David

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
