A solar eclipse at sunset over the St Louis skyline and iconic Gateway Arch which briefly appeared between the cloudsCahokian EclipseIn late 2014, St Louis looked forward to the once in a lifetime sunset eclipse. Capturing the Arch and Sun in the same image involved finding an elevated position along a very narrow azimuth several miles away in order to keep the sun the same size as the Gateway Arch. Fortunately, 1,600 years ago, an unknown native American people built the largest and most complex archaeological site north of Mexico City. Today, historians call these earthworks, the Cahokia Mounds…a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the occulting moon covered the setting sun, heavy clouds obscured the celestial event. Undeterred, a small group of worshipers continued their chants and beating drums thereby carving out a fleeting window for this incredible view. The orange hues arise from the solar filter on the end of my 400mm lens.

In the shadows of a great native American civilization of Cahokia, the iconic St Louis skyline, Gateway Arch stand along the mighty “Mississippi River”. These photos capture the city, “Jefferson National Expansion Memorial”, the river and the “St Louis Arch” in the best light, often during colorful sunsets with intriguing architectural reflections in the river’s waters.
