Take a Photo Safari at Arches National Park
For visitors with camera in hand, Arches National Park offers limitless possibilities. Delicate Arch is the most familiar photographic target in the park, an iconic image of the American West. But it's only one of the countless photo ops available here—from sweeping vistas to intimate close-ups of the park's many stone features, nearly anywhere one turns a lens can produce a great image.
Arches is always colorful, but the rich reds and other amazing hues here change dramatically at the rising and setting of the sun, and these “magic hours” produce the best images. To help photographers get started, the National Park Service has created a helpful table of the park's notable features and the times of day when they show themselves in their best light. Armed with this information, and the local times of sunrise and sunset, visitors can create visual memories to share with friends and family and keep Arches alive in their own minds long after they've returned home.
