Went out to try and get something for this challenge, got a few things that were OK, got home and heard there might be a Snowy Owl nearby so went back out to try and find him. Failed in that, but on the way home the sunset was not only beautiful, but this cloud formation looked like an angel in the sky to me. I'm sure I was primed to think fanciful thoughts, but of all the shots I took today, this is the one that "feels" right to enter. Tried text on it but didn't like it. Score immaterial.

Beautiful - celestial. I can hear the angels singing. In my top row of 10s. (There are half a dozen in this row.)
