This photo was taken on December 28, 2014 at 11:42 AM.
The location was from the back deck at my home in Bethesda, Maryland.
The "Take It!" Came from one of those step out the back door and happen to look upward. There was the composition of the
clouds with an overlay of the top of the winter leaf stripped branches of the maple tree in the front yard bringing about yet another restful view.
A quick run inside to grab my camera, and the return to the deck found the clouds altered just a little bit, thus the picture was
The After Take: To those who have looked at this picture - the reaction has been of silence as the photo seems to take everyone
in, and promotes a sort of calm for the viewer. I find this to be the same effect upon myself, each time I look at it.
Here is hoping this image has its calming way for you as well.
Wishing you the very best,
