Pennsylvania - Storm approaching looking east and west

Went down to Pennsylvania for a family reunion last weekend and stayed at my brother-in-law Victor's house. I took a little walk down the road and did a sketch of the view to the east, of distant cliffs that plunge down to the Susquehanna river behind the nearby trees and field. I was working on the crypto-coptic stitched double page spread, and had intended to do a panoramic view, but I forgot  , and started the painting on the left page only. However, at some point I turned around and saw the dark thunderclouds approaching from the west, and quickly sketched them on the facing page. So I have a sort of 180˚ bookend pair instead of a pano.
