suburban sprawl . . .

Seen Around Town : Dublin, CA

Seen from the parking lot outside one of the big-box stores where we had stopped to buy household necessities. The wild foothills beyond the asphalt and chain-link fence are fast being overtaken by condos and houses....but, at least no one can touch that GREAT BIG SKY ! ;-)

I like how you've processed the colors. And yes, no one can touch the sky (at least not yet.)

Wonderful shot, the kind of scene I would pass by in a car in a very slow driving car
captured in a dream. Beautiful.

The city is far but it gains ground on the countryside .

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld,old West Wales boy., Germany

i´d like to see the shot without the processing as well,I bet it´s much moodier !!

That fence makes a harsh compositional element between the nearly featureless dark foreground and billowy posturized clouds. A nice image made out of some fairly ordinary features.

Amen to that! The price of "progress", I guess....Beautifully done processing!

Fabulous sky, perfect in hipstamatic

Anita from West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States

Good scene showing development and what it is destroying. The tricky thing about the sky, is that there is pollution there we don't see.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

That's an interesting shot with that big, dramatic sky. A few years ago, I was in Des Moines, Iowa at a new shopping mall. Just beyond the asphalt parking lot, there were cornfields. Upon returning there a couple of years later, the cornfields were long gone.
