I don't know if tornadoes also occur in Utah ... hopefully not.
A very impressive sight.
The grey sky makes the red rock stand out well.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ray, The most famous rock in the Arches. Why it doesn't fall down?? It looks like huge stamen. Charming composition.

what a structure! Its orange color looks great against the gray sky. But what strikes me most is that this rock seems to be all by itself and not part of any mountain range. Amazing!
Have a great week!

Quite a peculiar rock formation. It looks very unstable but your picture is very good and interesting.

I saw your latest post, but this rock is more attractive for my eyes. I wonder with this so amazing "balancing" construction. Good presentation of another natural phenomenon from Utah.

looking at this, i'm getting such a strong urdge to push it over! Haha...no, i'd never do that...but it does make me wonder when it will fall naturally, i'm sure its only a matter of time.
the grey bg actually works in your favour here, really enjoy the contrast.
Excellent photo all around.

I won't want to be near this formation during even minor earthquake! I don't it will take much for the top to dislodge. Beautiful nature's art work nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.
