This was taken in the morning.. The sun was bright behind me, and the storm front was in the West. It was unusual lighting, so bright behind me and so dark in the distance, I grabbed my camera and started shooting.. This is the road, just behind where I live

    I love this. Iam a little jealous because I never get the gray of the clouds right. Gray clouds and fall colors are just beautiful.
