This picture reminds me of the lyrics from a Switchfoot song, saying,
"the shadow proves the sunshine".
This picture is just that to me. Being a native Portlander, yearning for the sun for 9 months out of the year when a glimpse of sunshine touches down, it gives you, hope.
I think that is how God works in what we perceive as the difficult times.
No doubt seasons of life are hard and even ugly at times, but without the shadows you can't know how great the sunshine is.
