Architecturally, the most spectacular of the bathhouses that grace Bathhouse Row in Hot Springs is the Quapaw, built in 1923. Renovation of this jewel has been completed within the last six months and the bathhouse reopened by a private developer through a lease with the National Parks Service.

Its distinctive feature, of course, is the ornateTurkish-style dome.

Photos taken with the Pentax K20d...the first with a Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 and the second with the Sigma 50-500mm (Bigma).

Lovely. The shots especially the detail shot is well done. The Sigma lens are a joy.

Hey, Paul. I think we've seen shots of that place before. (Not necessarily the same shots). Good work.
