a shot of the pauma valley under a storm

On my way to the state park, while halfway up the Palomar Mountain, I looked to the right and saw this scene, miles away. I found a spot and pulled over, and shot this with a super telephoto. canon rp with 300 mm lens. This is the Pauma Valley, which is tribal land.
