Tonight's sunset from Venice Beach

Broken layers of dark rain clouds and some scattered droplets made for a gorgeous sunset tonight, at least out on the west end. Photographer Jonathan Alcorn got to the Venice pier for this shot and others on his blog. He needed a good sunset. Alcorn tweeted earlier about losing his car in the maze of garages under City Hall. If it's any consolation, many have been there. It may be the only garage in town where my sense of direction relative to the street always fails me.
