Storm Clouds over Delicate Arch (Alex Mody)

Here's a reeeally old one, by my standards, at least. I've had a different shot from this evening on my website for a long time, but I'm beginning to prefer this one more. Maybe I'll switch them out, who knows!

When I shot this scene, the light only hit the arch for a minute or two. The whole sky was overcast, except for a small sliver of sky on the western horizon. The clouds you see in the sky were part of a huge snowstorm and were approaching quickly. I consider myself lucky to have been able to make a few decent images that night. It just goes to show that you should try and get out there even if the forecast is bleak. Sure, you may end up disappointed sometimes, but the rewards can be great!
