altamont afternoon

the weather was crazy around here yesterday ... windy and stormy for awhile ... and then the clouds would clear and the sun would break thru and light up the landscape ... i was headed back home from some errands and took a drive thru the altamont and all of a sudden the clouds opened up and the skies were bright and beautiful ... i just had to stop and watch the warm light caressing the hills and pulled out my camera for a few quick shots ... within minutes of this shot, the sky turned almost black and there was a downpour and then hail the size of dimes! ... and then ... crystal clear again as the clouds moved on ... i have to admit i love fascinating weather like this ... and i guess that guy likes it too.

 

a hint of texture and not much else ...
