A talented photographer has captured stunning images of a full moon passing through a spectacular red rock arch.
Zach Cooley captured the amazing shots at Arches National Park, Utah, on Oct. 28.
In Zach’s photos, a full moon is viewed through the gaping rock formation creating the illusion of a giant iris in the center of a colossal and mysterious eye.
Zach said: “Planning for this shot was difficult and it began several months in advance.
“Despite cross-referencing the moon position with multiple applications, there’s nothing close to a guarantee you’ll be in the right place, just a few steps in any direction and you won’t get the shot,” he added.
“I had never been so nervous for a photo as the moment approached, and never happier with the result of planning as the moon appeared where I was hoping and passed perfectly through the arch.”
