The Beauty of Arches

The Challenge

For this challenge, I would like to see a succession or pattern of arch shapes, also known as an arcade. The arches can be one behind the other (looking from near to far) or they can be side by side as seen in some bridges or other architectural designs. The only requirement is that the image must have three or more arches. Please use the Cover Image and the image below as inspiration.
