Utah's Natural Bridges National Monument is less famous than Arches National Park. It has 3 huge natural bridges, very photogenic and away from civilization. The Monument is located near Mexican Hat or Blanding, and accessed via Highway 265.
The 3 Bridges are located on a 9 mile loop road. The first one is Sipapu, the longest at 286 feet and seen in this image.

Amazing, and such a perfect time of year to take the shot, Ray; the color of the trees through the bridge is really vibrant. Thanks.

A really fine view and I really like the off centre composition, which suits so well. The layers of the rock are apparent, and the sight through the bridge gives a glimpse of a very colorful place beyond. Nice idea to exclude the sky, I find it hard to do that in pics, especially landscape but it works perfectly well here.
All the best

nice POV and the composition gains a lot from the view through "the keyhole". I like how the trees seen under the bridge correspond nicely with the colors of the rocks. Good framing and pretty warm colors.
Thanks for sharing

The upper part of this arch, the actual bridge, looks tall and stable.
Thanks to the trees, we can estimate the grandiose dimensions.
Wonderful vivid red area.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ray, Beautiful natural bridge. Good that these trees are in bright colours, otherwise it would be difficult to see where it is, with the wall in the same colour behind it. I was in Mexican Hat but I didn't known about the three bridges. Splendid shot from a remote place.
Have a nice Sunday MAlgo
PS. What is a Scandinavian height ?:)
