Darker sky ahead

This was taken on our drive north on the NY thruway about 2 weeks ago.  It was somewhere approaching Syracuse, and the clouds are a good indication of the hours of rain we drove through on the last part of the day.  As the elevation increased, we actually drove into the clouds and the rain increased.  If you looked down into the valley, you could see how clear it was. Very interesting phenomenon.  Well, it would have been if I wasn't so focused on staying on the road through the driving rain at that point!

I thought the colors of the plants among the bare trees made an interesting contrast.

It's interesting how different the world looks when you gain elevation.
