Maybe one of the most photographed natural landmarks in the country. There must have been 50 photographers and spectators on the same ridge overlooking Delicate Arch and almost everyone was yelling at people to move out of the way for fear their capture would be tainted by human presence. I chose to include the people posing to have their picture taken at the base of the arch. I think their presence provides scale and connects the viewer with the scene. What do you think?

Gene, I'm glad you left the person in there. I'm sure that people who only know Delicate Arch from photos would otherwise not have a sense of scale.

Absolutely needs people in this pic - it's the only way we can instantly realise its immense size. Great shot.
