Retired Couple At Double Arch

Retired Couple At Double Arch

I was really struggling here to find a way to shoot this. As is often the case, the place is so overwhelming that it becomes a challenge to really get anything across. In this image I was trying to show the splendour of place along with the scale of place. I needed something for scale and a way to draw your eye into the frame. Luckily this retired couple came into the frame at the same moment as another matching pair of people in red we’re exploring inside the arch. So hopefully when you view this large your eye will be drawn into the arch and you will get a good sense of place.

This elderly couple was wandering around looking for a place to take a selfie. A selfie which they had been taking every year for the past 56 years in various places. If you look very closely you will see the woman is holding a sign with the number 56 on it. I ended up taking a photo for them while they held the 56 sign. Maybe I’ll share that one later.

I shot this in the Arches National Park, Utah, United States on August 29th, 2014.

This photograph did not happen with luck. I took the ferry out to this island at least 15 times before getting this. Each and every time I struck out. It can be remarkably frustrating to do this but I think the final result was worth it. Finally the magic happened this one night and I was there and I was ready. The uncropped version of this photo is about 180 Megapixel. This final version is about 111 Megapixel. Viewing it here really doesn’t do it justice. You have to see it very large as a print.

I shot this in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada on May 27th, 2015.
