"Window to-the World"

Located high above the Colorado River, Arches National Park is a geological maelstrom that has been shaped by eons of weather and erosion.  

Many of these otherworldly formations are composed of Entrada sandstone, which geologists say was part of a low arid coastal plain adjacent to a great inland sea 150 to 200 million years ago.  

This photograph provides a unique view as it naturally frames "Turret Arch", in the distance, with "The North Window" arch. Perspective and scale is realized by the lone silhouetted figure embracing the first light of the new day.
