Fiery Frozen Gateway Arch No. 1

The St Louis Skyline and Gateway Arch on a colorfully red sunset as witnessed across the frozen Mississippi River. This January evening served as continuation of cold harsh weather which impacted the upper mid-west. Sensing an opportunity for the setting sun to illuminate the clouds from underneath, I headed to the river to witness a brief and amazing lightshow as the clouds transitioned from dreadful muted tones to wildly warm hues, then to darkness all in a few brief minutes, creating brief skyfire over St Louis.
