This is a looking "straight up" near the Northern leg of the arch. What an awesome work of architecture + engineering this monument is!

Really nice picture. The clouds and con. trail make for a great composition.

GM, k.-pic, and jerome, Thank you all for your glowing comments! I think I am liking this picture more all the time! I'm mad at myself, though - I ended up posting a version that wasn't cropped/shiftedquite the way I finally settled upon (with arch nearly perfectly cutting on diagonal). Oh well, I guess this is OK too, and now I can't bear to replace it and lose all these very kind comments!

Great capture! dave hermon

Miro- you're welcome. Dave and Hans - thanks- this was a total "lucky result" - I didn't expect it to works as well when I took it. Sometime luck beats planning. .

Great picture! When I was there, this view was a little surreal, especially at night. I didn't get the shot that I wanted. However,I think that's one of the things that makes photography so enjoyable, knowing that with every day there's always a chance to photograph something in a new way, and that I always find room where I can improve. Thanks again for taking such great pictures of the Midwest! Hope you get a lot more in 2012!

♥A fantastic architecture & fantastic shot!!


Best wishes and kind greetings from IRAN Fardin
