Arches National Park's Double Arch is in the opening scene of the flick "Indiana Jones and the last Crusade". This arch pair is huge with the largest opening a span of 45 meters and height of 32 meters (104').
It is a short half mile saunter from the parking area to Double Arch. Scampering around and under the arches is permissible. It is magic to sit underneath this temple of Nature and see it up close and touch its textures.

Yes, I remember that famous movie, excellent presentation of the decoration for Indiana Jones. Simple but attractive duo chrome scene.
I think it is serious challenge for Jason. He could show us a lot of photos from Utah, but he has posted Salt Lake City only ;)

Hello Ray ,
A superb capture of these wonderful rocky formations . I like a lot the lighting and the pleasantly saturated colors . Excellent framing and exquisite sharpness .

It must be an unforgettable place. Thanks for size information, it wouldbe hard to estimate just by looking at this. I like the way how blue sky and those shadows make almost abstract patterns.

Striking colors in this, and that without doubt enhances the striking natural feature of these twin arches. I like how you have isolated them in th scene too giving me the idea that this could actually be part of a great city in the sky.
Thanks as always

A fine perspective here, Ray, and great vivid color looking up and through the two arches. I like how you've framed this as well, leaving three distinct areas of blue to jump out at the viewer. Thanks for all these great Utah shots!

well done for this masterly managed light which resulted in properly lit all the details of the rocks. Amazing rock formations and well shot from the lower POV. Great colors and very pretty sky as a contrasting background.
Thanks for sharing
