Thursday Arch Series

.
A winter shot with a blast of unexpected color. No idea what the red berries are. My interest and understanding of vegetation mostly concerns how it tastes, maybe due to growing up in the midst of concrete and brick. Anyway, this bit of fire on a cold, gray day got my attention.

Beautiful.

Another angle on the arch, enhanced by what I think is pyracantha.

You'll find some flora and some nibbles to look out on my blog today....chuckle.

un nouvel angle , avec un bel effet de colorisation

I"d say that's about as perfect as you can get.

«Louis» now has himself programmed to stop by on Thursday to see your latest in the Arch series!

It looks like fire in the foreground and burnt trees in the what do you call it? Middle ground? ;-)

I enjoy your personal meme. In this shot the Arch looks almost transparent--light and ethereal.

St. Louis was one of very few consolations for having to live in the Midwest, especially in the winter. Do you ever visit MOBOT? It's a great place for leaving the concrete and brick behind you for a while.

Gorgeous shot!

I'm in awe. You've done it again.

This shot just needed winter to give its best. The waving line of naked trees is perfectly placed for a pleasing composition and the red berries (I almost wrote poppies!) add exactly just the dash of colour the photo needed.

Bob you're a master.

It got my attention, too. It's like a little bonfire warming up the arch and the vast gray sky above.

I really like this one but I felt compelled to block off the top of the photo with my hand to let the tree line undulate. With that perspective you've chosen, it's pretty wonderful, Bob.
