📢 Delicate Arch Photography Tips

It can be difficult to photograph the Delicate Arch without getting people in your picture. This arch is the most popular in the national park and there is usually a line to get a picture of yourself with the arch. I’ve only visited this park one time and it was during the summer months, so there could be less people during other times of the year. I arrived at the Delicate Arch shortly after sunrise and was happy with the lighting of my pictures, but I’ve heard the best time to photograph the Delicate Arch is at sunset. I didn’t have the luxury of doing this as we only had a limited time visiting Arches National Park.

However, after my experience at the Delicate Arch, some tips I would suggest are:

  • Visit the arch as sunset if you want to capture a warm glow casting over it.
  • Sunrise can also be a magical seen, but it is more difficult photograph at this time because the sun rises behind the arch.
  • Use a wide-angle lens to be able to get all of the arch in your shot.
  • Bring a tripod.
  • Stick around after sunset to try and capture the milky way with the Delicate Arch in the foreground.
  • Be careful! This tip doesn’t involve actual photography, but it is an important tip, because people have definitely died falling into the bowl that surrounds the arch.
