A little late in getting the August image of the month up, but here it is!
Summer thunderstorm across a Northwest Kansas cornfield.
Saturated soft light certainly embodied this scene as a summer thunderstorm developed north of Colby, KS with a green cornfield and distant farmstead completing the scene. The precipitation shaft revealed wonderful contrast with amazing hues of blues and greys. The muted whites of the precipitation shaft indicate hail.
