Photo thoughts--- I literally just processed this shot a moment ago from our storm chase this past Thursday on the eastern plains of Colorado. I was hoping to get some lightning out of these clouds and while it keep producing it, it eluded my camera. Couldn't stand long as my back was completely screwed but I made the most of it while I could. Standing on some county farm road close to a few other chasers who also were photographers, we watched this severe warned cell move to the NE and towards the city of Sterling, Colorado. I loved the way the sunset was showing it's dying color against the luminescence of the sky...areas of utterly dark meeting areas of brightness. It was something to see and photograph! ---John
I always envy those who live within easy reach of the great planes; that said, it still takes a great deal of skill to capture these scenes in the way you have. Well done. I love a good storm. Gets the adrenaline pumping, a good natural high for those who don't fear it!
