Higher Learning

Nikon D700, 300mm f/4 lens, f/8.0, 1/5000s, ISO 400. The United States Air Force Academy turns out officers who receive some of the best learning available. And this is the view that greats them every time they walk out of their dorms. It's the roof of the Academy Chapel, which has sanctuaries and chapels for several different religions and sects. I think it's a beautiful building. These spires run the length of the entire edifice, suggesting the launch of a row of jets into the heavens; and if you graduate from here, you might do just that.
