A talented photographer has captured stunning images of a full moon passing through a spectacular red rock arch.

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.”
