Red River Gorge
Daniel Boone National Forest
For whatever reason I usually end up at Sky Bridge anytime I go to The Gorge. Almost always it’s because I’m with someone who hasn’t ever seen it before, and if you’ve never seen it before then you must, because it is awesome. This time my good friend Dave Fishwick and I stopped by as he had never seen it before. There’s a one mile loop trail that takes you over the arch and then under it. The widest section of the arch is a span of 76 feet and 23 ft. tall and the smaller span that is to the right of the image has a span of 19 feet and is about 5 ft. tall. The arch sits atop a ridge at an elevation of 1,066 ft. and offers some stunning views the surrounding area. I always complain about coming here. I’ve been here so many times and I’ve always felt the arch is a very difficult subject to shoot and for two reasons, a) the area is always infested with tourists and b) I can hardly ever get a good shot of it. Enter the wide angle lens and no tourists and maybe I should quit being so hard on one of natures most incredible sculptures.
