Golden Arch

Golden Arch

On the Mississippi Riverfront at Dubuque, Iowa. The bridge in the background is the Julian Dubuque Bridge and connects to East Dubuque, Illinois. I was attracted to the patterns and colors in the glow of the setting sun.

We pulled over along the river to take a few photographs and when I got out of the car, I was immediately swarmed by buffalo gnats. Evidently the wet weather and high waters have provided the little beasts with a perfect breeding ground. I took only a couple of shots, and I did those super fast. Yech!

    Another shot with beautiful muted rusts and greens, yellows, blues. I love the texture, too.

    I agree with Bernie. The patterns and lines create a super perspective. You’ve also captured a wonderful mix of colors. The evening sun must have been very rich that night.

    I agree with ybonesy, Bernie K., and Gandalf… all I wanted to say. I love this capture and my type of photo. I’d hang this one on my wall, for sure. Very captivating with the patterns and line. Excellent! 🙂

    Sorry about the gnats. They’re a pain, but at least they’re not mosquitoes.
