What about this place is special for you?
I love the peace and quiet of going to Delicate Arch during the night when there are no crowds.

What equipment did you use?
Nikon D600, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens

Please describe how you got this photo.
I had spent the night photographing the arch, and just before leaving I thought it would be great to get a self portrait. I set my camera on timer, set up my light, clicked the shutter and ran under the arch before the exposure began. After the 30 second shot, I ran back to my camera and realized I took my favorite shot of the night!

Did you use any special techniques?
Light painting.
