Thursday Arch Series

.
Mississippi Low Water 2012-07-21 2.psd

Taken from the center of the walkway on Eads Bridge looking south. If the river were at a normal level most of the tan levee on the right would be covered. In a commonplace flood it would all be underwater. It's hard to tell in a wide angle shot but the distance from one waterline to another is a lot shorter than usual.

This has been going on for months. No relief in sight. The only solution I can think of is to go to Maine.

The large ring on the right side provides a sense of scale in the wide angle shot. Still an admiring image

A welcome panoramic view. Good one.

That sounds like a good plan of action Bob! Meanwhile I am again astounded by your image of the Arch and really enjoy that you've incorporated the tree arches over the bridge span into the shot!

Nice shot! My daughter just returned from a week in St. Louis and had a wonderful time.
