I took this photograph of Delicate Arch in Moab, Utah on a particularly cold January day in 2009, with a snow-capped La Sal Mountains in the background.
The way I hiked in to the arch was quite dangerous – a narrow sheet of ice with huge drop-offs in some places. I ended up finding another way to hike out later in the dark and was able to avoid the ice on the way out.
