Friday night in Northern California was alive with thunderclouds, lightning and spectacular sunsets. I captured this from the top of the levee on Sherman Island in the Sacramento delta. This scene looks northeast toward Sacramento (an hour’s drive). Friends in town said there was lots of lightning, thunder and enough rain to get cars good and dirty.

Just to the west, looking toward the San Francisco Bay area, the sky showed little activity except for the wonderful colors.


These conditions continued through Saturday and created epic conditions for some fabulous windsurfing.
