mesa arch
Canyonlands National Park - 2015

 
This composition is a very famous one especially at sunrise where the sun comes through the arch. Consequently, there were quite a few folks trying for photos at the same time. Most folks were aware that they were not the only ones trying to get a photo. But one young man was oblivious to the others in attendance. He was attempting to pose his girl friend on top of the arch. In staging here, he stood right in everyone else's composition. We all waited patiently for him to get his shot and move on but was taking too long. I spied another photographer who seemed also to be anxious to get his shot. So I took the lead and motioned for this inconsiderate individual to move out of the way which he finally did. The other photographer took his photo and then thanked me for taking the action I had.
