Was driving in the Antelope Valley (northern Los Angeles County) near the poppy fields and saw these beautiful winter clouds with the mountains in the background and could not resist stopping and taking a picture. Having spent my life in different areas of the United States I am continually amazed at how big of a vista you can see in California. In certain areas of the country you can hardly see even a mile at at time because of buildings, hills, trees, or whatever blocking your view.
Used a Nikon D100 and a 12-24mm lens for this photograph.
