That's what I call "dramatic skies'...gorgeous
Frank L Croston.: It's certainly that alright , Bonnie, thanks.
You somehow always capture the "feeling" of being there... and such detail you've brought out in the clouds. It's a beautiful scene, and a wonderful feeling you've presented me with!

I have seen the tiny flowers in the desert east of San Diego, Frank, and can just imagine what this precipitation will do for them!

You can see the focus for the storm - right over the mountains. Obviously the rising desert area condensed over the mountains. I can remember something very similar happening over the San Juan Mountains around Durango.
Frank L Croston.: I don't think this was far from there, Alan.
