Princess Arch
Red River Gorge Geological Area
Daniel Boone National Forest
Kentucky

Sky Bridge in Kentucky's Red River Gorge Geological Area is a place I've been many, many, many times and for a while I was really considering never returning. Although it really is one of my favorite arches, I was quite burnt out on it. But no matter how much I tried, I always found myself returning because I was with someone who had never seen it and I didn't think it was fair not to take them there because I was selfish. This past weekend I not only visited the arch once, but twice and a total of three times over the last three weeks. I took my good friends Scott and Monica to visit Friday evening and I didn't like the light at all but that visit inspired me to make a trip again Sunday morning. I knew the forecast called for clear skies and after having done some research I knew the angle the sun was going to strike with the early light. Although I wish I had of arrived a bit earlier (wasting time at Chimney Rock hoping for some cool fog effects), I really liked how this scene played out. After taking numerous compositions in the direct sunlight I decided to have a go at this angle, one that has never really worked out for me in the past, until this day. It just goes to show you, that you can go to a place 50 times and it's till possible to see it in a new perspective and in this case a new light.
