      From Janet Jones:
      I like the way the strong black and white pattern of the foreground recedes into the picture, leading us to the subtle colors and textures of the foliage, hills and sky.

    Artist Statement

    Taken in Coyote Hills Park, in Fremont, California. This area is usually a wetland, where you can see birds, and take really nice walks around. After several months with no rain, the soil got all cracked, and on this day I heard the weather forecast stating it was going to start raining. I went to take this photo to somehow show the contrast of the cracked soil with the clouds announcing the rain was about to come. Within seconds of taking this photo, I had to leave because the rain finally came.
