This is quite a photo. Excellent job on the composition; the tower is wonderful. But those clouds are so dramatic.

At first glance I though somewhere in Europe. Amazing.

Wow, now there's a spire to do some sky watching from. Almost looks like a light house, could it be it's looking over the water?

What a handsome water tower! Nothing like what we have here.

First I thought: what a wonderful image
then I thought: that sure is an interesting image, the cloud show against the sky is so unique. I enjoy that the picture made me want to look awhile.

You know those birds came across this water tower and said "check out this great bird house guys!"....I lived in WC for 3 years and loved every minute of it. Everywhere I pointed my camera I was rewarded. Great sky shot.....

What a great water tower. And the layering of the clouds looks very dramatic.

Thank you for sharing your picture here with me. I really like this. I live in Ca. and I am not sure where Lafayette is? I will have to google it. LOL!
I am brand new to SkyWatch Friday.(Today was my first day)and truly am amazed at all the wonderful pictures. This a very nice picture and something I never see in my part of Ca. Awesome!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog. It felt really good being a "newbie" and all, and having so many people stop by!

Unique! It's enchanting how the cloud mass divides the picture and I really like that you only included the top of the tower with the birds parching on it in this image. It makes it easy to focus on what's essential.
