Thursday Arch Series

.
The Arch gets some great lighting effects as sunset approaches. It is different in every season and kind of weather. The grand staircase that leads down to the Mississippi adds drama. The monument nearly disappears into a cloudless sky but a bit of jet contrail creates some depth.

Holy Moly Kingfish, this is superb!

I can see why you love this Arch; its permutations are inexhaustible. The light/shadow horizontal/vertical here are striking. Another fine and enviable photo.

magnifique, avec l'escalier, on dirait qu'elle s'envole telle une ├ętoile filante

I like Olivier's suggestion of a shooting star - it could be a rocket taking off too!

Another of your amazingly creative shots of the arch. I'm completely in love with this series of yours.

Oh and BTW the Idiotarod series was incredible fun. I'd never heard of it and laughed all the way!

Very nice, Bob! «Louis» is glad he finally showed up to see this!
