Happy Valentine’s Day, Everybody!

Guess which national park I am at this week? Open-mouthed smile

Happy Valentines Day

I had the image for this photo in my head about two weeks prior to my trip to Arches National Park, Utah. After I figured out what I wanted to do, I went into MS Word and chose a heart from Clip Art to print on 11” x 17”. I then folded the paper up and packed it away for my Utah trip. I just *had* to make the hike up to Delicate Arch at some point in time during my stay in Moab, but the question was: when? If the weather remained below freezing and/or snowy during the day, I probably would not have attempted the hike because of any icy conditions on the slick rock. But, that one day that dawned crystal clear and the temps felt like spring, well, I *knew* that was the day. So I hiked to Delicate Arch with the paper heart folded into my camera backpack.

    Gorgeous shot!!! Such a beautiful day you captured then.
    Joyeuse Saint-Valentin!

  2. I love this – such a clever idea! What an extraordinary place. Did you set the shot up on a tripod and then sprint into position? 🙂

    • Actually, Reggie, I had a wireless remote with me this time around. It makes things sooo much easier. However, there *is* a distance limit to using this remote. Nonetheless, it worked out wonderfully.

      • A wireless remote is a brilliant gadget – it’s also on my ‘must get’ list. I somehow couldn’t imagine you sprinting across those potentially icy rocks…
