Weathering the Storm


 
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner   Weathering the Storm
Weathering the Storm

A church steeple reaching high above the community is commonplace across the land..... Image captured recently before daybreak in our town after a rough night of storms - Ironically one week later, on a Saturday night, another storm passed through with winds being clocked between 65 and 90 mph - The steeple, unfortunately, came down. Sunday services went on as scheduled with the promise to rebuild soon... The spirit of a community is a powerful thing!

Canon 100-400L IS at 400mm.

  The vivid blue against those dramatic sky colors, the composition, the steeple ~ all are so beautifully captured, Jeff. So sorry to hear about the steeple, but it sounds as though the community will come together to make things better soon. Powerful is the right word for it!

  Beautiful capture with gorgeous light and color. So sad that the steeple came down, but at least no one was hurt. People in that part of the country have sure had their share of bad weather.

  Jeff - Such a beautiful capture of the steeple and color and light along with an inspiring story of faith over bad circumstances. I also heard on the news about those strong winds blowing down that steeple. Glad to hear though it didn't dampen the community's spirit to rebuild it.

  Beautiful early morning capture of a local sight, Jeff! So dramatic with the morning sky colors and then just the tower and steeple as defined subjects. The accompanying story adds the finishing touch to this image of faith and perseverance. Congratulations on the 2nd place win!
