The last two days have been dark and overcast. Yesterday morning you could smell the moisture in the air. This evening you could feel the rain. Only for a moment did the sky open up, showcasing Gothics on the horizon.

A while back I posted a similar photo taken from the same place at the same time, but I think I like this one better. The added rock surface in the foreground gives a different feel. Let me know what you think.
