Synopsis:
Intercepted initial high-based storms in the Wallace and Sharon Springs area with a marginal high-based supercell emerging southwest of Colby with fairly dramatic, scalloped updraft structure. I then decided to go west of the storm and photograph dramatic sky scenes in the wake of the storm nera Brewster with great results using a windmill as foreground subject
