The peeking sun, the layers of clouds, the orange hue, the horizon. Magnificent!

Nice capture. Heard on this morning news about the quake. Been only in a few small ones and they impressed me.

That is a stunning image! The split in the clouds, with the high light, is so pretty. You've got a great eye!

All those layers are fabulous together... dark and light with bright color to boot.

It's a little scary, isn't it?

I wish I could have been there to experience this in person ... a splendid scene! All you would need to make it perfect is a deck chair, a glass red, cheese n crackers
& good company!
Fiery red, comforting warmth!

Great blog, I've lived through 3 big ones in southern California. The worst one occured early 90's. Epicenter was about 4 miles from where I worked. Had to wear hard hat to work for 6 months. I remember the shaking from the aftershocks went on for months. Some were 5 and highter on the Richter scale. Glad I live in central CA now. Great dramatic photo.

anita,
to me it's more worrisome than a tornado because you can't see it coming.
