Blooming Arches

Courthouse Towers

Spring is sprung in Arches National Park. The image above is from this morning, right by the roadside at Courthouse Towers, minutes from the park entrance.

I shared this spot with Joe Zinn who I’d previously run into at the Pawnee Buttes last June.

Joe told me that this particular plant has been around for at least the last ten years. So long as you’re equipped with a suitably wide-angle lens, it is perfectly situated for this shot (as other, more famous, photographers have long known!)

Off to the Fiery Furnace now.

Fantastic shot Stephen! I have indeed seen an image of the same plant before the courthouse before. I don’t remember who made it.

Thanks Jao! I suspect you’re thinking of a certain Mr. T Till of Moab…

Stephen … In my dotage I’m attempting to be a serious amateur and this image is certainly inspirational! Thank you for sharing! And thank you for TPE!
