St. Louis winter scenes

I've been waiting for a clear post-fresh-snowfall day to go downtown and get some new shots, but that has eluded me until today. I had a few tasks to take care of in O'Fallon this morning, so it was a convenient time to go on into the city and make a few photo stops. The region got about 3 inches of snow last night.

From East St. Louis. I had to stand on top of the concrete levee wall to get this view over the railroad cars. There is a nice new elevated overlook here, but it's about 300 feet back from the levee with high-tension power lines slashing right through the view. So it's basically just as I've always had to do to get this view since I started coming here 10 years ago.

Apparently the panorama stitcher I've been using can't handle up-close panos of the Arch. No matter what settings I used, it always had trouble with the top part. This is the better of the results, though still not usable for anything.
