UTM Photo of the Month — August 2008

Filed under: Photography,UTM Updates — Mike U @ 11:31 am

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. Details of this image:Nikon D3 body, 14mm focal length, 1/50s @ f/11, ISO 1250. Photographed July 17, 2008 during a western Kansas storm chase.
