Mesa Arch is a perfect trail for beginners, families with small children or light hikers, and one of Canyonlands National Park’s most iconic vistas. It’s easy and short, and a full display at the trailhead explains how to hike the trail. Although the NPS manages this trail for beginner, it has something for everybody, and a half along the short loop you’re treated to spectacular Mesa Arch. Canyonlands National Park is only a short 30-minute drive from Moab, Utah, so it’s very easy to spend one day at one park and the next at the other. The trailhead for Mesa Arch is at a large parking lot along the Grand View Point Road. The very short and easy, 0.6 mile round trip hiking trail is well-signed and easy to follow. Be courteous to other visitors during your visit to the arch, and do not expect people to move away from this world-famous landmark during your photographs. Remember that not everyone who visits this arch is a photographer. Most people want to experience the joy of standing next to such a beautiful landmark of the Utah photography, and most of them go there to witness and capture the moment on camera. I was also there to see, with my own eyes, how amazing this natural wonder truly is. As the sun rises, the arch does come alive with a fiery orange glow; the snow-capped mountains in the background, still cold with the winter air. Try not to limit your creativity by simply capturing images of iconic places using the same composition as countless photographers before you. Just remember to bring enough memory cards to capture all of the magnificent views!

Individually produced to the highest possible standards Alexander Vershinin's limited edition prints are printed on world leading photographic paper, Fujiflex Crystal Archive: an ultra high gloss, museum grade photographic paper, with archival properties of over 70 years and with trade marked printing and mounting technology - Lumachrome Gallery Deluxe with archival properties of over 120 years. Both technologies allow to achieve extremely precise print quality, with a unique opportunity to display sharpness, contrast and color reproduction capabilities. Concentrated light hits the print, is accumulated in the silver crystals, and is reflected back - it makes the impression that a photograph is in 3D format and shines from inside. А photograph is placed on the metal dibond plate and under Lexan or Perspex – super transparent, non-shattering and antiglare "glass". This kind of acrylic defense is completely colorless and offers the best possible presentation of your print. It also blocks 98% of UV light and is highly resistant to weather, temperature & humidity changes resulting in the best possible archival-life. To finish the luxury design, we offer exclusive custom wooden frames that allow you to get the museum quality of your art.
Our standard delivery time for unframed Fujiflex prints in tubes is 15-18 days worldwide and its absolutely FREE. Professional custom picture framing takes time: framing alone takes about 17-20 day (shipping time not included), some more elaborate projects may require 25 days for completion. Anyway, our standard delivery time for framed and matted works in boxes and crates is around 25-30 days.
