Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-29
I wanted to give a Daily Deviation to StamatisGR for a long time. I remember having turned down a couple of DD suggestions, however, always waiting for the "money shot". And voilá, the waiting has paid out! I hereby present you Fire in Athens by =StamatisGR, a photo that has already been seen by over 900.000 people in a newspaper and in the internet. Congratulations, sir!

A dreadful scene by nature, but at the same time a successful instant shot with good framing, the Parthenon singles out amist the cloud which is a majestic S.

I hope no one will be hurt.

Godo to hear, thank you.

Was it somehow related to the extreme heat?

Turkey is grilled as well nowadays. Public institutions are closed for two days in the capital, Ankara.

Actually this photo was taken on September 14, 2009.
So, no it's not related with the heat we are also having these days.
I hope this heatwave ends soon as we can barely move outside.

A small part is being in the right place at the right time.
A big part in knowing what to do do!
Strong and dramatic shot.
