Clouds and Confusion

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Clouds and Confusion
Clouds and Confusion

----
Normally we equate clouds with confusion as in "My head is filled with clouds!"
----
This might be Nature's way of illustrating that abstraction. It was shot while standing at the very base of the Comcast Center--the tallest building in Philadelphia. The soaring building has a glass facade that is ever changing. I've seen it looking sleek in shades of charcoal grey, or cobalt blue as it mirrors its surroundings in myriad ways.
----
In mid-afternoon on this late February Day, there was almost no distinguishing the brilliant natural "cloud show" from the Comcast walls.
----
It was a DIZZYING confusion of absolute endless beauty from where I stood.

That is pretty cool, Michelle. The buildings kinda disappear into the clouds. Nicely done....and I wish you were a BP judge! :-)

No Jack. Relatively speaking, my meager 63 inches doesn't amount to a "hill of beans at the foot of this building!" Stood upright with my neck like a crane operator's!

Wonderful capture, Michelle -- looks for all the world as if you added the cloud filter. So cool that it is natural. Well seen and taken.
