Aperture:f/16
Focal Length:24mm
ISO:400
Shutter:1/400 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Driving east on Church I was struck by the contrast of the twin steeples lit brilliantly against the bruised sky.  Luckily I was able to park and get back up to the scene before those clouds blew through.

As a photographer I was toying with a closer crop with just the steeples and the sky, almost monochromatic.  You can get an idea of that version if you cover up the red brick buildings and tree on the left side of the photo.  But in the end I included those buildings and the tree because I really liked the contrast between the warm and cool colors and their distinct positions each on their own side of the photo.
