Gridlock In Washington D.C

During a visit to Washington, D.C. in October 2014 we ate lunch in the cafeteria/restaurant inside the US Capitol. It was very much what one would expect: long lines, mediocre food and uncomfortable table seating.

During our meal it began dumping rain by the bucket-full onto the glass ceiling above. That was when I became fascinated by the lighting grid- all those intersecting lines, the light fixtures, and the wind-tossed trees outside, only barely visible through the torrent descending from the sky.

I'm not sure how much I like this picture, but I thought I'd take a run at making something of it. Maybe with more time and the ability to set up a proper shot this lighting grid cold be made more interesting. But here it is anyway.
