Like a runway to the sky, the lines carry the eyes off into the hazy distance!

Love the contrast between the clean neatly "lined" ground and the clouds making the sky look dirty. Sort of 70s film noir feeling. Great work Ralph!

David from Detroit, United States

Wow. The light streaming through the fog makes it look like a gigantic wind is pulling the fog off of the building. Very cool.

That's amazing..I love the fog and low cloud and they mood they bring. Great black & white.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautifully spotted and captured! I love how the shadow of the building is cast "into" the fog, giving a sense of depth and 3D here.

Yet another great shot from you. Very well treated and composed. It feels like every time I visit your blog you have very much developed your photo skills in one way or another! It is great to see you recent creations. Thanks for the comment on my recent post. It is nice that I have some supporters, also in times when there is long time between my uploads and I have little time to give comments myself. I hope everything is well with you too.
