Obelisk Head(s) in the Clouds
An Obelisk is a stone pillar/monument placed as a commemoration (often to an event or something of great significance).They go back thousands of years, being depicted in Babylonian and Egyptian cultures. A famous one also stands in the National Mall in Washington, D.C. – the Washington Monument. Their meanings always make for some interesting conjectures and debates.
I took the photo of this particular obelisk while ascending Mount Nebo in Jordan (not to be mistaken with Mount Wannahockaloogie from the movie, Finding Nemo). It was placed there for a visit by Pope John Paul II in March 2000. I liked the composition of the pillow-like clouds as this pillar-like structure stretched above the treetops (from my vantage point) towards the heavens.
