After what seemed like interminable weeks of hazy skies, a weather system is finally moving through the area for a couple of days.  Though there are forecasts of thunderstorms, we have only seen pockets of rain.  At least that means there are atmospherics to photograph.

One of the shooting locations I have come to frequent in recent months has been the area of Latrobe in the Sierra foothills.  With the higher elevation, there are clear views of the valley towards the south and southwest.  On a day such as this, the sunlight filtering through the storm clouds is an invitation to spend a few minutes admiring the view and snap a few photographs.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center weighted metering mode, ISO 100, 116mm, f/13, 1/125 sec

    1. Thank you Simon. It always takes a little bit of luck to have a scene fall in place. The next day after this photo, there were even better sun rays, but no worthy elements to place in the composition!
