    I love how much depth you can see in this photo. From the floor to the ceiling you get a full view as opposed to just a macro shots of the clouds. Submit it to CU!

    I really enjoy the flatirons and the building in the bottom of the pictures. I think it adds good depth of field.

    That’s a great looking picture of CU right there. It’s nice being able to capture two different heights of clouds.
