Sky Arch

The word for this week’s Word a Week Photo Challenge is Arch, a word that provides ample opportunity for creativity. Arches are typically thought of as those good old curved buttresses that made possible the building of the great cathedrals of Europe as well as structures around the world. Of course arch has other meanings and acts in other contexts. For example one can arch one’s eyebrows or one’s back, one can be an archenemy or an arch-villain. A basketball shot travels in an arch (mine a very inaccurate one). An archer is so named because of the path the arrow traverses to its target. I could go on but to cut to the chase here we have a rather ephemeral but none-the-less worthy arch. This one formed by a stunt pilot during his aerobatics routine.

Minot Air Show - 735 - July 04, 2012

I think it is fair to call this loop (performed by an aerobatic (or stunt) pilot at an air show in Minot, North Dakota) a circle, but as always comments are appreciated.
