Thursday Arch Series

And now for something completely different. Well, sort of. See U "R" Us' guest post of April 13. Last Sunday, I rode to the top of the Arch for the first time in perhaps 20 years. What fun! If time permits, I'll post something soon about its surprising design and construction. The observation deck at 630 feet / 192 meters above the base is a bit vertiginous. This picture was taken mid to late morning, looking northwest. During the time I was working, the shadow of the Arch crept across the grounds like a sundial.

Most of my Arch photos are simple black and white images. This one had to be in color.

Your Arch Series is really good.
I hope you're not scared of heights or taking this picture must have been a real nightmare!

This arch is spectacular as well as the shadow cast upon the magnificent view.
