Gateway Arch

St. Louis’ Gateway Arch is a 630-foot monument in St. Louis, Missouri. Clad in stainless steel and built in the form of a weighted catenary arch, it is the world’s tallest arch, the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere, and Missouri’s tallest accessible building. The Arch gives St. Louis a stunning cityscape and is something […]

St. Louis

A helicopter view of St. Louis. I had the ability to fly with a group, “doors off,” to photograph our scenic riverfront. This gives immense flexibility to photograph your subject.  You have to make sure everything is secure so nothing flies out of the cabin. ON this trip I used a wide lens to get […]

River Chateau

This is a view of the St. Louis skyline from the deck of the Chain of Rocks Bridge. In addition to the buildings, you can see the St. Louis Arch. The little French Chateau building in the foreground is actually the water intake for the St. Louis water supply and is actually quite large and […]

The New Kiener Plaza

The new Kiener Plaza used the same statue as the old plaza and everything else is new. This is a gathering place for sports rallies in St. Louis, particularly the Cardinals and Blues. I think the Stanley Cup passed through here more than once. This is a three shot HDR Photo taken about 20 minutes […]

St. Louis Union Station

Next week we will be celebrating the 4th of July. Early that morning they will clear the streets for St. Louis’ 137th Veiled Prophet Parade. Behind Union Station floats, marching bands and giant balloons are assembling for the massive annual event.

New Kiener Plaza

The new Kiener Plaza opens this space while giving the nice view of the Old Courthouse and Arch. It was pretty cold this day so there were not many people in the new area. This view gives a nice perspective of the leading lines of the pavement directing the view to the Arch.

New Kiener Plaza

St. Louis Downtown’s Kiener Plaza. The Plaza just had a complete remake leaving only the statue. This great view includes the plaza, the Old Courthouse and the Arch. A wide lens allows you to get up close to the fountain while including the buildings and arch. Also this photo was taken well after sunset giving […]

Flying low in front of the St. Louis Arch

The St. Louis skyline makes a great photograph with the Arch, the buildings and the river. This is a photo I took recently from a heliocopter photography trip. This was the low pass. After this photo was taken we turned around for another pass at  a higher alititude.
