Sky on fire

Published September 24th, 2012

The sky was blue when we arrived, but the sun soon started to light up the sky a dark orange. We had a good 15 minutes or so of shooting before we had to leave.

I spent five hours chasing this storm around and was able to capture enough images I liked to keep me happy for a bit.
