16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Heaven’s Gate captures a majestic storm cloud that developed on a humid summer day above the Wicomico River. As I was taken picutes of this interesting cloud formation, the sun started coming through the bottom of the cloud in what appeared to be a distinct hole in this cloud, which reminded me of a gate to heaven. The yellow light between the cloud and the landscape was very colorful and unusual. The rays of sunlight coming through the cloud formation were very precise and made me think that someone is sending me a message from heaven.
