Lenticular clouds over Balboa Park

Like painted brush strokes | Lenticular clouds over Balboa Park

One night in April, I was in Balboa Park and was treated to a very interesting and pretty sunset. The sky was mostly clear except in the east where the horizon was covered with a long stripe of lenticular clouds. As the sun set, the clouds really lit up like a painted stripe of color. I'm not sure how rare this is, but I haven't seen anything like this in the time I've been in San Diego.
