This sunrise was taken 2 years ago 10/08/2015 by me at Bolsa Chica Wetlands about a mile from Sunset Beach California. It was extremely clear air for SoCal. The clouds seemed to be remnants from thunderstorms in the Sierras judging from the West CONUS: Water Vapor Loop Map the night before but I am not a meteorologist.
