Equipment
Was simply taken with a Canon t2i (F/10, 1/100 sec exposure with a focal length of 18 mm).
Description
Picture taken of the white dome observatory housing the famed 200" Hale telescope. This picture would just be a nice memory if it wasn't for the conjunction of filament clouds overhead and the mid afternoon sun behind. It all makes for an interesting composition.
