Drama - # 08/191

The heavy cloud and rain throughout July and August have been rather wearisome, but now and then the sun has broken through to give stark contrast and magnificent "battleship grey" cloud backgrounds.

In this case the copper domes, brick and sandstone of Richmond theatre are bathed in late afternoon sun set against a background of dramatic grey cloud. A really "dramatic" spectacle.


  1. What wonderful domes - I don't feel as if I'm in Richmond. And what an ominous sky against that light on the building. Dramatic indeed and so it should be as it's a theatre. So many wonderful contrasts in this photograph.

  2. Very fetching Chuck, reminds me of the wartime picture of St. Paul's in London.

    Great work on your blog today and a very appropriate picture.

    I've just racked up two years at South Shields Daily Photo and I hope to be passing here in two years time to compliment you again! Keep up the good work!
    Thanks to everyone who has passed by and left a comment or some encouragement, it makes it all worthwhile.
