Thunderstorms occur in many places, but they're special out in the wide open spaces of the west. For one thing, they can be seen at greater distances than is possible in forested or urban areas. Their size and ferocity are also more apparent from afar. The one below was moving rapidly west-to-east near Tie Siding, WY, darkening the ground and throwing lightning bolts and dust as it whipped across the prairie. After this shot I tried to get closer to the lightning, but the tempest of Nature was moving too rapidly. So, a shot of the ominous-looking clouds was my kewpie doll for the day.
