March 6th -

I went to bed last night to the sound of wind in the trees and the wind chimes outside my bedroom window.
When I awoke this morning, a storm had blown in and the day was cloudy, grey and considerably cooler than yesterday morning.
A break in the weather, a brief respite where the sun stepped out from behind the clouds and I stepped out for this photo.
I drove east of town to a spot overlooking the mountains and got out of the truck.
These palm trees and the contrails made for a lovely criss-cross pattern.
I snapped my shot, got back in the truck and by the time I was back to the main road the sun had disappeared behind the clouds again.

On Comanche Drive near Breckenridge road, looking toward the Tehachapi Mountains.

All that effort for one shot... -- but so very worth it.... Wonderful composition...!
