On Colorado Plains by INTOtheRFD On Colorado Plains by INTOtheRFD
A lumbering supercell thunderstorm with incredible structure rolls over the High Plains of Eastern Colorado around dusk. I set up to capture this shot of the storms various bands and cloud structure rotating during a longer exposure during twilight and happened to catch a lightning strike in the vault of the storm!

Beautiful picture!  I live in Colorado and as long as there a supercell thunderstorms the eastern plains will never be boring.

Still, it's a great photo, and thank you for sharing! :D
