A Local Icon

No, the city isn't on fire. And no, that's not the moon. That is in fact the sun, rising over the WWV on a foggy day. The icon referred to in the title is the College Place water tower; on one side it says "College Place" in bold black letters. It's a landmark - a local icon - and was once the tallest structure in College Place. (Until the 7-story women's dorm at WW University was built in the 70s). I know this would have made a great Skywatch Friday shot, but I couldn't wait until Friday! I love the sun and sky in this photo. I'm impatient, what can I say?

Oh, that's beautiful. My mother and I used to call those towers "men from Mars'.
