Prairie Skies – Sunset, Storms and a Lightning Strike

On the drive across the prairies to Medicine Hat last weekend, Bobbi and I drove through an early spring storm near sunset.  The trailing edge of the storm clouds were to the west and the sunlight slipped in along with some amazing color.

To the east, the strongest part of the storm was still releasing wind, rain and a bit of lightning.  With a few 30 second exposures I got lucky and caught this bolt as it shot out of the darkness.
