Storms and the beauty of clouds



Clouds and darkness surround us, yet Heaven is just, and the day of triumph will surely come, when justice and truth will be vindicated.  ~ Mary Todd Lincoln

I love living in California, mostly because of the dry, warm weather.  But during the winter, we get lots of rain, and with the rain, sometimes we get great cloud formations.  That's one of the things I miss about the east coast – spectacular summer rains and lots of billowy clouds.

Clouds1 Most of the time, the clouds here are either non-existent (blue sky days), or unremarkable.  However, during the recent storm which brought all kinds of chaos to southern Cal, here in the SF Bay area, we just got a regular soaking.  And some great clouds. 

I added the original pic as an insert so you could see the difference between the original and the one I cropped and colored on my phone.
