That is a dramatic looking sky. Looking forward to a long overdue return to France myself, without the sky this month.

The sun through the sky is really effectful and make this a beautiful b&w image.

I was recently told, as I snapped a similar shot, this sort of break in the clouds is called God's Eye

Very nicely captured. It looks like one of those skies used in paintings of god looking down at earth.

Super and dramatic photo. I love it. I wonder what the color version looked like . . . ? The ball chucker below is so cute. What a great invention for people who own fetch-doggies.
