Tension on the Plains

Today’s image is a continuation of the storm chase from yesterday.  After the hail, we followed the storm cell further south and found a view from an open field where the storm settled in for awhile.  We were able to setup our cameras and capture the lightning show.  This image is one of my favorites from the evening. I have this image a black & white conversion to give it a little more contrast.

Lightning strike across the night sky trailing a large wall cloud as it moves through north eastern Colorado near Greeley.
