The Arch On Friday

Gateway Arch 2014-03-06 1

I haven't had a lot of Arch pictures lately. The winter has been miserable and a photographer is pretty exposed around its base. Plus, there's the problem that I keep whining about of finding something new .

Well, it's finally getting warmer. My new office is a block from the foot of Eads Bridge so I decided to go for a walk to it at lunch time. There was the Arch, framed by some bare gum trees. I liked how this turned out so here it is, even though it is the wrong day of the week. 

The bottom picture was taken from the bridge looking back at my office building. It's the rectilinear one under the US Bank sign. My window looks straight at the bridge and river.

You have a really cool view! The arch looks like it's out in the countryside!

très bucolique la première, j'aime beaucoup l’intégration de l'arche dans la nature

Agree with Olivier. And it almost looks like an Easter basket handle in the 'grass'.

Nice to have the gum trees and the arch both sharp. The second shot is a bit to grey for my taste.

And yet you do keep on finding these incredible angles Bob.. I agree with Ciel, the Arch could rising magnificently out of a field somewhere out in the country :) What a view you have there.

I will have to check my calendar. You are posting a photo of the Arch on Friday instead of Thursday. Something must be wrong.

It's an entirely different angle for the Arch, and from previous pics you've shown us, I can imagine being out on the grounds during the winter can be pretty cold.

Beautiful shot, Bob!

What a landmark.

That is a new view. I like it.

Bob I'd missed that photo of the arch and I'm so glad I went back browsing through some of your older posts. This one is very creative and quite unique. Love it!
