One of the things I miss about living in the midwest is seeing the storms move in from a long ways off and seeing them come to life. I used to love teaching weather. When I was doing a lot of stuff with my 35mm camera I'd be up on parking garages shooting film of them moving in. Out here, we sometimes get these really vivid colors either before a storm or immediately after it breaks. They don't last long. Maybe a minute. When it happens it's magical. It light's up the field in front of our house and the pines on the surrounding peaks. This doesn't do any justice but this is with zero editing. Right after I took this the lightning bolts started popping off in the orange.
