Princess Arch in the Red River Gorge, KY

This is one of the many beautiful natural sandstone arches that dot the Red River Gorge and many other Appalachian areas.

This is a 4 vertical shot panorama stitched together with MSN ICE.

I wanted a different view point then what is usually seen from this arch. One of last picture I took of it, I climbed a tree ..... but the problem with that was there were other trees that got in the way.

So I made me a 4 foot extension to my hiking stick with a camera mount on the end. Then I held it up in the air against a tree after setting all the camera setting manually prior and putting the camera on 10 sec. self timer. The the rest is just "trial and error"
