Challenge #3 in the Richard's Series series. Hosted by Richard Butler.
Challenge has finished
It's sometimes too easy to take the 'obvious' photo, and this is even more true when you're shooting a famous landmark or place. A standard, archetypal image of that location or feature becomes popular and these inspiring buildings and places of wonder become the stuff of postcards. This challenge is about pictures of buildings and places that people know, captured in an way they're not used to. Make the familiar and famous look unusual, expected and exciting.

It was one early summer evening in Berlin's infamous Brandenburg Gate. The interesting patterns of cloud forms caught my attention so I took the opportunity to capture this moment with the silhouette of the gate.
