I'd quite like one of those in my garden. Are there any to spare? Doesn't it make you want to see what's on the other side?

It looks a bit enchanted!
Is this the entrance of a park?

What a great subject! I like the hints of red in the background and the tree that you can see through the arch, it really draws the eye into the picture.

Love old stonework, I wonder how old this is? It amazes me how the stones at top stay there, supporting each other in the arch. Good documentation of old time craftsmanship. Thanks for sharing.

I took this photo at Quail Hollow State Park, in Hartville, Ohio. This stone arch is at the back of the herb garden in back of the manor house. Leave the herb garden by this gate, and you will find yourself on the edge of a peat bog, and a bit further along the path, a pine forest. The "manor house" began as a small farm house in 1838, but additions were added until 1929. The house today is pretty much the same as it was in 1929. Harry Bartlett Stewart, CEO of the Akron, Canton, and Youngstown Railroad, and his family lived in the house from 1914 to 1975, after which it given to the state of Ohio.
