School's Out

Eight years (minus four days) earlier, Elke and I had noticed this beautifully constructed but long-abandoned schoohouse, while riding out a hail core and photographing the aftereffects on the back side of the Aroya anticupercell. Right then, we decided that if we ever had the opportunity to shoot that schoolhouse in front of a storm, we would. While staying ahead of a storm that was picturesque in its own right, the chance arose. The result is an archetypical image of today's Great Plains, and among my favorite shots of abandoned structures.
