Balanced Rock
Arches National Park
Moab, UT


A quick search on the internet would find you countless images of this this famous rock formation, the Balanced Rock, and even some with almost identical perspective and composition! In an effort to produce unique art this piece was an effort in combining emotion with the essence of the famous Balanced Rock--its pure form as a silhouette, but with its beautifully textured skin clear yet subtle.

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
