Storm Clouds Over Fremont Canyon

Here is a view of Fremont Canyon, about a mile east I think from Irvine Park, and one of the areas newly opened to the public. The morning we went to paint it was sunny, but within the first hour dark storm clouds moved in and it began to sprinkle a bit. I had to stop painting the sunny scene I began with, and ended up with this view of the sun breaking through the clouds to illuminate the far end of this little valley. What a wonderful experience to see this land, largely unspoiled. One can't help imagining how it must have been and looked for so many years and realize that the rest of our Orange County must have been as pristine and beautiful as this.
