BALANCED ROCK, ARCHES NATIONAL PARK, UTAH, MARCH 4, 2010
SMC Pentax-DA 55-300 at 55mm
1/500 sec. f8
Balanced Rock, the most photographed attraction of Arches National Park in southeastern Utah, is 128 feet tall, the balanced portion (the size of three school buses) measuring 55 feet high. It's best captured late in the day, but I arrived at about 3 in the afternoon, a bit early for the best light. All the same, I'm pleased with this photo.
