Gathering September Storm over Vancouver's English Bay

The afternoon of September 19th was enlivened by an approaching storm, fairly high winds (which soon dissipated), and dramatic cloud formations. I shot until blowing rain forced me to retreat to the car. These pictures were taken either along Cornwall or from Jericho Beach, both of which overlook English Bay, downtown Vancouver and, across the bay, North and West Vancouver. For about one minute, there was a fascinating interplay of a burst of sunlight which was highlighted by the backdrop of dark clouds.
