I posted this in the wildlife sub-forum, then saw this theme and thought it fit here as well, so please excuse the double post.

No excuses needed: dark skies and even darker, ominous appearance. Works very well.

wonderful interpretation, Akira!

Thank you, Peter.  That was a "gotcha!" moment.  ;)

Thank you, Paco.  It might be her vanity to make her want to stand there?  :)

Paco is right.  The eagle is nicely silhouetted in front of the backlight from the cloud.  A huge natural photo studio!

Natural "design" meets man-made forms...natural dominates...a feeling of well-being is instilled in the observer.

I have been inspired by the american painter Edward Hopper regarding shadows and the light. The photograph shown is one of many taken in an effort to create some hundred images based on my inspiration from his paintings. To me this is a continuing process in my daily living environment. Maybe a book in the future...? Nikon Df, AF-I Nikkor 300mm 2.8, aperture 16, Nikon polarizer and a tripod.
One picture taken is far better than none!

That is a very interesting image, IMO.
