Cloud Swirl

1/29/13 -104-


This photo was taken on November 6, 2012 at 8:03 am.
The location was in Downtown Washington DC.
The "Take It!" came from this massive cloud cover that was in the shape of a swirl. The photo does not do it justice and I must say I was frustrated in not having some sort of open field nor building top to which I could have gotten to immediately to capture this amazing effect. 
The After Take: Most who I showed these photos to liked them and said they wished they could have seen them too. To be candid - I think the clouds were so close together and had such a full coverage of the sky that many could have missed the phenominon.
Here is hoping you will join me in taking a regular opportunity to look up when outside on cloudy days - for there could be a big surprise up there waiting for you. 

Thanks for joining us for the current photo presentation. You are cordially invited to return Tuesday, February 5th for a new picture that we hope you will enjoy.


All my very best to you,

    It has an eye of the storm look to it, but at the same time its quite peaceful.

    You are very lucky to find stuff like this. Whenever I look up all I see is, well, maybe its just my lack of imagination.

    Thank you for your creative comments - your observations are inspirational. I am an avid cloud watcher which is a carry over from childhood. I cannot remember who it was that introduced me to the game of ' lets find a shape ' but to who ever it was - I owe them a life long debt of gratitude. I try to repay this debt with a pay back of sharing my findings.
