The clouds were very uncooperative this week. We mostly had dark, flat, gray featureless skies. On the last day of the competition things cleared, and as I rode the train home I wondered if I could figure out an interesting cloud shot. My stop, the last on the line, is just a few blocks from the Bahá'í temple in Wilmette. So, I walked over.

There was not much to work with -- only a few sparse clouds, but I liked the contrast of the textured dome and the puffy cloud.

I know sadly little of the Bahá'í faith, but they have only eight continental Houses of Worship and one more under construction. All are pretty impressive structures. I am lucky I have one so close.

So it was neither a church, nor a mosque.

So simple.. and the dark sky does wonders for the impact this photograph has.

Powerfull composition with minimal clous. I like it.

I think i have seen a picture similar to his one. Probably in a book, but i cannot remember which one.

Can't wait for the challenge to be over to see where it was shot. I wonder whether it's a church or a mosque. I like the mistery.
