Quick snap of the sunset
That is dramatic!
For me, the delicate church spire somehow seems so vulnerable to the weight of those huge menacing clouds.
Reminds me of this - (not in Forest Hill though)
Interesting perspective. With the church lit so it appears defiant.
It is almost as if these structures were built to tower above the earth, reaching up to the heavens to connect with something higher than ourselves. Demonstrating the power of the church to rise above mortal matters and reach out toward the godly.
Nowadays we leave such symbolism to the banks, the broadcast media, and space tycoons. And the church spires are converted into homes for the upwardly mobile.
I wonder if that is the same lightening bolt from a different angle …
