We are having days with unusual weather - it's warm, with lots of clouds, and very clear. This morning at about 6:30, the mountains were outlined all around the basin, and the rising sun lit up the clouds with numerous virgas (rain that does not reach the ground) on the horizon.
The 2nd photo is from our back window on Monday morning - at about 5:45 am. My husband, who walks the dog every morning, alerted me to this one. The photo is with Canon Rebel Xsi (and out of focus on manual focus) - who would of thunk that clouds are not in focus at the exterme setting of the focus dial.
