This is a view of one one of the Northern California lakes local to us. Being not far from the ocean, we often get thick fog which rolls over the hills. On this evening, large clouds combined with the fog. Seagulls travelled inland from the coast to get away from the more severe weather. Dark clouds - especially when the edges are lit up by the setting sun - embody a powerful reminder that even in the darkest of times there can be awe-inspiring beauty as well as hope and a promise of light to come.
