This shot was taken yesterday at about 3:30ish PM before the skies opened up. I'm on the 40th floor here at work in the Federal building. I like to call it Storm Clouds Over The East River. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif You probably can't see it because it got really dark, but the Brooklyn Bridge is all the way to the lower right side of the pic. That building directly across is the Supreme Court. That bridge you see on the left is the Manhattan Bridge and off to the distance where it's still light is Queens on the left and Brooklyn on the right.

That is an awesome photo!

I am glad you told us what it was. If I were an documentry maker (who shall remain nameless) and I were doing a doc on polution, I would use your photo to show how bad the air polution was in the city! LOL!

Again, awesome photo!

I shot it in black &amp; white to give it that dramatic feel. If it were in color things would be a tad more visible.

Yeah, I am a big fan of Black and White. It looks more classic. Color can be too busy most of the time, of course there are always exceptions.

Question, "Where's the pool hall? Surely there's a PH under that hanging, dark cloud somewhere!" ;-) sid

That would make a good desktop theme. I use XP Radiance, with the moon and all. This is similar in amount of light, just a different texture.

Kind of reminds me of the way the sky looked three weeks ago when an F3 tornado came thru my area.

DG - I was 8 miles away and didn't get to see it

It is a nice view from 40 floors up. I get to see the cruise ships coming in, the ships during fleet week, helicopters buzzing around for whatever...
