The second I saw this I thought of a Renaissance painting. Beautify. Love the colors and the look of a pending storm. :O)

Note: the image looks dark because it was near dark at the time I took the image.. This image was taken very late in the evening. (9PM I think) I did not want to bring up the light and make it look like a daylight exposure.

I wanted to keep the mood as it was when I was there. And yes, the clouds were quite dark as it had just been raining…in fact it rained on and off all day. The storm was clearing as you can see.
