Location: Philadelphia

A Red Tail Hawk perches on a street light in Philadelphia. This was taken about an hour after sunrise and the band of clouds rolled in at just the right time. This image was set up with the thought of getting the Hawk in the circle of the Sun but the scale wasn't right. Not much editing. A very slight hue/sat adjustment and some burning of the brightest part of the clouds just above the Sun.

One of my favorites in the challenge. I can see an old man's face in a cloud in the upper right. A very cool shot.

I gave you a 10 but never made it back to comment. Love this! So moody, it would make an awesome book cover!

This is a really cool silhouette. Love the shades of orange mixed in with the clouds.

This is rather neat. When I first looked at the photo I wanted the white to be the clouds, when in fact the clouds are the dark parts.

a beautifully arranged image. Poetic.

Love the composition and color! Great sky. The smooth arc of the light pole is almost jarring against all those random, intricate cloud patterns, but it leads my eye straight to the hawk and the moon above him. Just a very cool scene.

Kind of Edgar Allan Poe-ish feel.
