A Big Arch

a big arch

A composite image from several photos.

I was too close to get the whole thing in the viewfinder, so took some overlapping images and used autostitch to assemble them into one image. That’s why some of the people look a little ghostly. They were in two or more of the overlapping images and got “blended” into the scenery.

The same arch can be seen from a closer viewpoin in Utah Sky in a Natural Frame.

Photos in this composite image were taken September 24, 2007.

    I like it. The ghostly images give it a sense of timelessness, which is appropriate for a stone arch. Also makes it somewhat reminiscent of "The City on the Edge of Forever."

    Very pretty. I love the color of the earth and the arch itself.

    Ah, red rocks and dirt…makes me homesick for the SW. I am originally from Arizona. Nice stitched shot. I just downloaded Autostitch the other day but haven't looked into it.

    I love the autostitch of this photo! Excellent job, and I especially love the movement!

    Thanks all! We only spent a couple of days in the Moab, Utah, area, but we will certainly be going back. I also took a LOT of pictures, so, over time, will be posting more here and on Haw Creek and the blog, Haw Creek Out 'n About.

    I also have and use autostitch.
    This turned out great!
