Beautiful just before the rain. Are you doing OK during all the storms? Can't believe it's been drier here in Oregon than in CA this week. Wild weather!

Eure Landschaft hat so eine unglaubliche Weite. An diesm Punkt wo du dort gestanden bist, herrlich frei und das Auge kann weit weit schauen. Hier ist alles viel begrenzter, ausser in den bergen. Da erlebe ich auch weites freies sehen. dir liebe blog Freundin ein schönes Wochenende

What a great capture ... it really needs to be enlarged to appreciate all the detail: like the grass in the forefront, the textures on the trees and the cloud literally resting on the mountain.... good one!
happy friday and a great weekend to you.
Thanks for popping by my blog too!

Hi Linnea, I didn't know about your rainstorms - from some of the comments above it seems they've been bad - I hope all's well with you? Lovely shot, which makes me think of autumn more than winter, and I love the textures in the clouds which as Gena says look like they're resting on the mountain. Hope you have a great weekend,
Janice.

Your scenes are beautiful. I am eagerly awaiting some greenery. Five days of falling snow is about enough.

i love this time of the year when all the hills around the bay area are a beautiful green and all the wildflowers will start coming out like the wild lilacs

Wow, that is a stunning sky

Owlfarmer said...

The trouble with you California folks is that you always manage to make me homesick! This shot just takes me back--a good thing, really, especially during another rather dreary day in exile. Thanks for cheering me up!
