I was driving to the hills, late afternoon, trying to catch the rain. I was hoping to take some photos for the rain challenge. But when i got there, the rain had stopped.
So i thought i could sit and enjoy the view for a while. The atmosphere was so clear, i could see for miles, and after all, a little break wouldn't be bad.
As the sun went down, a blue overcast covered the city and that gave me the idea for this challenge.

Post process: levels, curves, color balance, selective color, crop, sharpen, save for web.
