We very rarely have views like this. Thunderclouds - or big massive cloud formations are more a standard in the midwest than here on the California coastline. But the other day, just after we'd had a couple days of rain, this was the view from our hill. This shot was taken facing northwest. If the visibility had been better, you might have been able to see the skyline of downtown Los Angeles just to the left of the two palm trees. It's very rare that we can see those far off images since downtown LA is about 45 miles away. But on occasion we do see it.
