Gerry van Roosmalen about The sun caresses the Mesa Arch in Canyon Lands.

We strategically set up camp at the HorseChief campground, about a 25-minute drive from the Mesa Arch. I like the idea of photographing the Mesa Arch while the sun shines through it.
It's about a half-hour drive, and then a 20-minute hike. So we hit the road early, and really, we/I don't even think for a second that there might be others with the exact same idea.
It is a huge setback when we drive into the parking lot at the beginning of the trail, and see that the parking lot is really rammed full. Parking on the road is not an option, so we have no choice but to drive on, take pictures somewhere else and return.
A bit further on in the park we enjoy ourselves with another hike, and return a few hours later at the Mesa Arch. This time I am able to park our RV, and we begin our hike.
When we arrive, the sun is too high for a "through the arch sunlight photo," so I go for the alternative, "The sun just above the arch photo." It is still crowded at the arch, but armed with a super wide angle, and enough guts to get a little closer to the edge I manage to get a spot, from which I can take a picture where it still looks like I am alone in the world....

This artworks is offered by Gerry van Roosmalen

My name is Gerry van Roosmalen, a professional photographer and author. After some travels in the business world, I decided to radically change the helm in 2002 and to fully focus on my passion: photography. Between 2002 and 2004 I visited the fotovakschool in Apeldoorn where I graduated in the courses of portrait and reportage.

In 2006 I decided to study documentary photography. In 2009 my first book was published about a project that I carried out in Greenland: "Why Greenland ..." This book is only available as an i Book.

In 2012 my book "Ode to Iceland" appeared. In this book I combined the images I shot during my various tours in Iceland with texts in which I tried to express my impressions and feelings that I experienced myself when I first faced the spectacular or sometimes just lovely landscapes of Iceland. The english book "Ode to Iceland" can be ordered in the iBook store

In my Webshop I collect the most beautiful images I made during my travels or sometimes just in the studio. If you do not have the right image for your taste, please feel free to contact me. Perhaps my archive with images contains something suitable for your home or business.
