An atmospheric web-cam shot of Cabezo

I wouldn't often describe an image from a web-cam as 'atmospheric', 'moody' etc but there's something about this one of Cabezo, Mt Roja, and El Medano that I really like. Taken a few moments ago at 17:30, normally there should be more light, but that big back-lit mass of cloud is half blocking the sun just as it starts to think about setting over to the right (West).

With thanks to Rudi for installing his webcam on the 'Casas de Colores' that he rents out and manages. Click on these to get the full picture ...

and how about this one - taken half an hour later ...
