St Louis Arch


I went to shoot the arch with the capitol building in the foreground. I got a reflection from the empty pool in the foreground as a bonus. The bright lights are a mixture of different temperature incandescent lights. I had no tripod. It was freezing cold. With everything working against me, I happily clicked away. This is a classic viewpoint for the St Louis arch.

    Nice shot, but that’s not the capital, that’s the old federal courthouse. As a matter of fact, that building is where the Dred Scott case was heard. I’m impressed that you managed not to capture any of the ugly traffic that is usually heading down Broadway Ave right in front of the courthouse. Cars have ruined many a photo in that exact spot for me.
