Ann and I were visiting Arches National Park, near Moab, Utah, in April 2016, the year of the 100th birthday of the National Park Service. We happened upon this neat view of the moon setting at sunrise near "The Windows." I got a series of photos because I liked the way the brilliant light hit the tops of a few sandstone monoliths. After a year those images were still haunting me so I dug out the shots and came up with this rendition.
