Cumulus (avoiding arrest)

I agreed to take some pics for a group who are painting the lighthouse on Beirut's Corniche. Greeted by an alert soldier I was shooed back over a chain (to keep out pesky intruders) and informed that I was not allowed to take any photos (unless the soldier hadn't seen me doing so!). I decided to enjoy the amazing cloud formations while waiting for the project organiser to arrive. It's only taken them four long years to get permission to paint! And once painted I imagine that half of Beirut will want a selfie with the lighthouse!!!! Further picture-taking delayed until various important people have finished dithering/located the file/etc/etc
What a wonderfully dramatic sky!

A beautiful Composition of the sea and sky. Love your tags. I am reminded of the time we were trying to take pictures of the generator boats in the bay and a soldier came up and told us we weren’t allowed to do that either.

I saw a comment of yours on one of my old photos and thought I'd drop in and see what is going on in your life. I see there is a void since the end of May. I hope that doesn't mean that you did get yourself arrested!

I"m dropping in too - just to see that you are OK! Its dangers territory and we hear news every day.
The clouds are beautifull with their even base all the way along!
