Stormclouds, South Laguna Beach, CA

This image was taken in south Laguna Beach, by the Montage Hotel. There were wonderful storm clouds coming in, and the sun was low in the horizon. I shot this from a walkway leading down to the beach so I could get the two large boulders on the sand into the composition. The clouds over the rocks and waves in the center of the image give the picture an ominous feeling. The sky looks a little like the sky in Close Encounters of the Third Kind when the alien spacehips came out of the clouds.
