Vapor trail of an airplane going over arches national park

Vapor Trail Over Arches National Park

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

Steph came up with this shot, so I can’t really take credit. We hung out below the rock for about 15 minutes as the sun shifted around behind it. This was my favorite photo from the series because of the plane trailing through the sky.

  • Great Silo shot vthe vapour trail adds depth well done!

  • this is a good idea. the image feels really ‘clean’ and yet so interesting with the vapor trail and the texture of the rock.

  • well, you tweaked the settings & clicked the shutter button, so i guess i’d have to give kudos to both of you for pulling this off.. :D and surely, this is an awesome shot.. great work.. :)
