This past late fall I got to get back out and shoot at Red River Gorge where after all these years finally made the hike to Double Arch. I had originally planned on visiting the arch back in October but after an unplanned night of nearly a bottle of Makers Mark Whiskey my shooting intentions for the next day were somewhat derailed. I've really found photographing arches a very challenging subject and I will have to admit this one is one of the more difficult I've come across, from both sides. Double Arch sits high atop a ridge line, this side is the hikeable up close and personal side where the other side of the arch is a sheer drop off, but visible on the opposite ridge from the Auxier Ridge Trail. The only thing I really didn't like about this side was you couldn't see both arches from below as the other arch is a sliver directly above the main one. I'll have to admit it was worth the 2.5 mile hike out to see this beauty and I'm definitely looking forward to returning in the early summer and in the fall.
