Storms are a powerful force of nature.

With the recent more gloomy and raining weather, this week we took photos of a storm. Since there are rarely any storms where we live, I took a trip to Poplar Beach in Half Moon Bay to photograph what it looks like right before a storm hits. The beach was deserted and thick fog and clouds covered every bit of the sky. Thankfully, I was able to get my pictures and leave before the thunder and rain began.
