Thursday Arch Series

Shot at mid-day in cloudless summer sun. I metered for the metal skin, making the clear sky a dark shade of blue. It brings out interesting patterns in the surface. The Arch looks smooth at a distance but there are many subtle irregularities.

TOMORROW: Danger on the highway. danger in your wallet.

It looks permeable, micro-thin, I can see through it to the blackness on the other side.

Sorry I'm commenting late, but your perfect shadow of the flooded lamppost (flood crest dated 22 June) was WONDERFUL!

Nathalie said...

Your other photos of the flood were quite remarkable too, and I enjoyed the top photo of your bike race post.

I really like this picture. It looks like an abstract painting.

This is without a doubt the best photo of the Arch EVER! I can imagine this as a lost remnant of human life drifting through space...post-earth.
