SUNRISE at 75
While visiting Moab, Utah and surrounding area, I became a member of the Seventy-Five Percent Century Club. I had decided that on my 75th birthday to treat myself to a photography field trip to shoot the Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park noted for its sunrise photographs.
I arose at 4:30 AM and shortly departed on a forty- five minute drive out to the arch. Thank goodness for 24 hr. 7-11’s – COFFEE. Once I arrived at the parking lot, I began the twenty minute moderately strenuous hike to the arch. Upon arriving at the arch, I joined a group of 25 or 30 other photographers who had traveled from other parts of the world to capture the sunrise. By this time the sky was beginning to show the first signs of daylight so we all positioned our Nikons and Canons and prepared for the big shoot.
