We’re driving I-64 for 320 miles when we get to East St. Louis and notice how this part of it, anyway, looks like any place with a Lowes and a Wal-Mart and fast food ghettos.
Then suddenly in front of us the arch glows in the white sun, rising above the bridges and underpasses, taking dominion over the slovenly wilderness. The arch is tall, like the air, a gateway like nothing else on this or that side of the river.
Less is more. Respect.
Very interesting photo. I love it. It’s been many years since I’ve been up in the Arch but it an amazing architectural feat. 🙂
Thanks for commenting. I agree . . . the arch is pretty amazing!
Awesome…speechless and running out of power…
You did justice to something that is very difficult to capture because of the size. Great photos.
looks like a fantastic structure
So stunning that it makes me want to just be still. I especially like the last in the series.
Thanks for commenting. I appreciate it. I did have some fun with that last image in the series!
Nice. Great subject, but not easy to deal with — even though it doesn’t move!
Agree with Fabio. The first composition is so peculiar (and beautiful) that it seems what I imagine when I read to Arthur C. Clarke.
Thanks much, GBe and Francis!
Great photos or the arch! The compositions are topnotch! Thank you!
Thanks. The arch is a great photo subject . . . it’s big, and it doesn’t move!
