Mood for Inspiration

We all know setting can add a lot of depth to a story. Sometimes it becomes more like another character! There's really nothing like working with a real place and using all your senses to bring it to life on the page. I recently walked part of the Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island. We didn't get the sunny, warm day we anticipated, but I enjoyed absorbing the ominous mood the clouds and wind created. And I got a few shots that captured the atmosphere to some extent.

What do these images make you think of? Could you spice up a scene or two in your story with some moody weather action? Of course, I thought it would make a good setting for a murder. But that's just me.
