Picture of the Day: Mesa Arch, Canyonlands

Photographed by Chris Carvalho, The Mesa Arch in Utah’s Canyonlands National Park is one of the finest places for a photographer to start the day. This 4×5 negative was exposed with an old lens, a 121mm Schneider Super Angulon. It was a favorite of Ansel Adams. While an excellent optic for its time, it only had single-layer coating and was subject to more flare than modern lenses. In this instance, it created a starburst pattern with rainbow streaks that add greatly to the character of the image. [NatGeo] More Pictures of the Day
