The Story

After waking up at an unfathomable 6:30 am, I looked out my window thinking that it would be a usual overcast morning. To my pleasant surprise I saw very beautiful cloud patterns and shadows instead. So I rushed to throw on some warm cloths and scurried up the roof of my house to capture this beautiful scene. I spent a good 20 minutes on the roof trying to capture different angles and views but this was one of the first images I captured. It had the most dynamic light as well as the most shadows over the clouds.
