Captured under sunset light as "golden hour" began at Arches National Park. This panoramic view of Elephant Butte is in the Windows section of Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. La Sal Mountains, Cove Arch, and Turret Arch are visible in the background (right). The clouds formed perfectly to frame this natural feature!
