Looking at the Sky - Steeple Cloudburst





Looking at the Sky on Friday returns, and many times a steeple in the sky often adds an accent to the heavens.


The dramatic cloudy sky sits above the  lovely Three Saints Orthodox Church located in our town of Ansonia, CT.  This building, that replaced an earlier structure that was destroyed by fire, in 1955. This church traces its heritage to the end of the 1800s with immigrants fleeing the Slavic nations to escape religious persecution. 


The sky is mostly cloudy with its blue-gray hue. The billowy cloud sits near the peak as if it was tethered to the cross on the tall steeple. A divine feel to me...

Divine and in three. Nicely framed with the cloud action.

What a beautiful capture! Both the structure and the sky are pretty.

Happy sky watching!

Gorgeous church and lovely skies behind. We had the same idea and ironically both used Orthodoz Churches as our subject.

What an interesting design for a church - definitely not what we usually see here in New England but I like it very much! Perhaps I'll see it tomorrow when I'm in town!

That is truly a lovely shot. The cloud adds a lot to the compositions! I love it.
