Stormy clouds form over Sacre Coeur Basilica atop Montmartre in Paris.

Although these clouds are a bit exaggerated, for most of our stay in Paris it drizzled or threatened to rain with only periodic patches of clear blue sky. Although in the above image I used a bit of a selective curves adjustment in Photoshop to bring out the contrast in the clouds, the real sky however wasn't far off from this on nearly a daily basis.
