Flickr photo of the day: Golden arch


Every night, from early winter to spring, earnest photographers will pray for a clear sky when they rise early – very early, almost two hours before sunrise – to drive from a motel in Moab, Utah to Canyonlands National Park. They will hike 30 minutes, through the pre-dawn gloom to the edge of a 500-foot-deep vertical cliff to catch the sun as it rises through Mesa Arch.

During the winter months, the 50-foot-wide arch spans the part of the sky where the sun will rise and set, providing a unique look for each month. Texas-based photographer Jerry Cotton captured this image in April 2012.
