Yet Another "Look Up"


This photo was taken on Aug 8, 2016 at  9:10 AM


The location was in the street in front of a moderately priced hotel on Capital Hill in Washington DC.


The "Take It!" came after having taken care of my business reason for visiting the hotel, I happened to look upward as I was about to get into my car.  The cloud above the next building was breathtaking.


I closed the door to the car and found a place to stand to take this photograph.


The After Take:  I have shown this photo to numerous people and all have enjoyed it. Most were immediately caught up in it and had nothing to say while they took it all in.  It required little if any explanation.  My comments were pretty much held to how grand it was to have this kind of show provided for us by nature, and further, how grateful I am to have seen and caught a part of it.?? All the best to everyone.




PS:  I have used this vantage point before for photos.  While the buildings and the street physically may remain the same, nature can change the game.

    It is a truly beautiful cloud. I think the contrast of the building really brings it out.

    Its really cool how the foreground of the building is just completely void of any color.

    There is really a lot going on in this photograph. The part that really grabbed me was how the cloud almost has pock marks or something. I am impressed with this one.

    My kid keeps asking me if I see the dinosaur foot in the cloud, oh to have a child's imagination!
