Hugh’s Weekly #Photo Challenge: Week 28 – Glorious

I took these pictures in the vicinity of Palm Springs, California, January 2016.  

I like the snow falling on the mountains, the ominous clouds next to blue sky, and the rays of light shining though to showcase the top of the mountain.glorious

Below is the same mountain after the clouds begin their retreat.  Notice the windmills in the background.  They look so small, but they’re several stories tall.  The water towers remind me of civilization’s encroachment, and how very small our accomplishments are in comparison to what nature can do.
