Resonance XXIII

While driving past several days before I had seen the sun strike the cenotaph at this interesting angle but did not have a camera with me. For the next few days it was just a matter of waiting until that exact time of day when the sky was clear enough to let through enough direct light. It seemed that this would not happen but on this day I decided to drive down set up and wait. Sure enough the clouds cleared for long enough to get the shot.
