resubmit 2/17/11, landscape. We got up at 5AM to reach this arch before sunrise (Arches NP). Fortunately, we met a photographer whom I hastily asked for the best view of the arch as he ran by. He motioned, so we followed through the North Window arch and a rock scramble to a ledge where this view is found. The Turret Arch is seen through the back side of the North Window, just as the sun rays hit.
