on a grand scale

Rainy days are generally no fun for photographers of the great outdoors, but actually conditions haven't been all that bad.   Stormy one minute and sunny the next, and interesting and dramatic transitions between the two extremes.

This is up on our beloved Mount Tamalpais.   The hills are a vivid green now.   The road up here is appropriately named Ridgecrest Boulevard, and dozens of automobile commercials have been filmed on the twisty and undulating road.

These clouds were moving fast and I had to remind myself not to dawdle.   However if I had missed these, another puffy set would have probably appeared within minutes.   This is part of Black Mountain, sometimes called Elephant Mountain, not far from the lake at Nicasio in west Marin County.

As usual after visitng here, I am left without words. Your photos are astounding artforms and i never tire getting lost in their every detail.

The opening in the sky and shaft of sunlight piercing through has something divine about it. True religion.

I love this time of year when the hills are so lush and green. Nice capture of the green, shadows and poofy clouds in the last one.
