Westward Memorial

Obviously, I've been to St. Louis, Missouri, because I don't have 630 foot (192 m) stainless steel arch in my backyard. While others were likely disappointed that the skies were overcast and on occasion spitting rain, I was thrilled. Moody skies add great texture to a black and white image.
Fabulous composition. Perfect in b&w.

Nice pov on the much photographed arch! Agree a moody sky is your friend especially in b&w!

Great composition - and the clouds are great!!

Great POV. Since it's a b&w, the sky is probably better this way.

wonderful shot ... did you go up in the arch?

Well there's a perspective you don't often see. Great capture and I'm happy that you had a nice gloomy day for your photo!

What a nice pov for this - I agree with you about the grey cloudy skies for b&w - perfect composition.

Cool capture. And the clouds do greatly add to the composition of the shot.

@lynnz The tram is closed until March, so no, no arch elevation for me. The whole place is actually under major renovations. It's slated to be completed by summer 2017 but I don't see how that's possible considering the chaos the grounds were in. I wish them good luck tho. It'll be something once the changes are all done, I'm sure.

Gotta fav this moody view of my hometown icon! Lovely POV. The grounds are completely chaotic, but I agree... the eventual result may be worth it.

The sky is amazing and so is that fabulous arch. The entire image is so lovely with the silhouetted trees as framing. It's lovely on black too.
