This is the rough edit of the picture I wanted to take this weekend, 4 arches and the sun. This is a single exposure of a 5 shot bracket so I’m hoping to get better definition in the highs and lows of the image but I’m too tired tonight.
I was hoping the sun would set on Turret arch itself but I was pretty sure it would be too far to the right. Even on the Winter Solstice I don’t think it would move too much further south. I think the best you would get is it setting in the lump of rock on Turret Arch’s right, not through the arch like I imagined. I spent the last couple months of time planning and calculating to see how things would line up, I knew the window (lol!) for lining it up would be just a week or 2 before and after the winter solstice. I’ll try to write up a technical description of what went into planing for this soon (I hope).
