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.
