This is another one of those scenes that I drive past every day and pay little attention to. One morning the clouds were sitting just right to cast shadow on the landscape but light up the mountains in the distance. I blew off a meeting that morning to run home for my camera and come back for a few photos.
This is a treatment I've played with on a few other photos lately too. Rather than doing a straight black and white conversion, adding some tone to the photos extends the life and usefulness of many of my images.
