I've said it before and I'll say it again, chasing is all about appreciating the details. Especially true on local chases, when you almost never have truly epic storms to shoot. This updraft back in late July was struggling, but it sure did make for a beautiful sky-scape :) The air was moist enough that it allowed these spectacular crepuscular rays and shadows to be cast from the clouds. Often we see simply the effects of good light (i.e. golden hour, rainbows, etc), but this time it was really unique to actually be able to see the light itself in action. Good light spilling from its source, creating a wonderful cloudscape :nod: Scenes like this can be relatively common in the summer, but they're best when viewed while on a desolate dirt road with nobody else around. Though I will admit that =JupiterLily was along for this "chase" but her company certainly didn't take away from the serenity ;)

Simply put, amazing. I've been attempting in vain to find something so dramatic and so well placed (nothing of shooting from a bus, etc) to pic it; hope to find it soon.
