Choosing the right moment to be at the right place is a big part of landscape photography and then there is de execution of the shot. You did great on both accounts!

Nicely captured. Did you have to manage around the large numbers of photographers that get up early to capture Mesa Arch at sunrise?

Thank you all for so kind words!!!

I tried to take a photos of this place twice.

The second time it was in June, we slept in the car in the parking lot. At 5 am I was near the arch, there were already a few people.
I was able to find a good position and take this and a few more successful photos.

The first time in mid-April, but the weather was rainy and there was no visible sunrise. Nothing could be seen, everything was in the mist.
This morning there were almost no people, few came and quickly left, only I and another photographer were waiting for the weather to improve.
A little later visibility improved and I was lucky enough to take this photo.
