Borderline Spectacular

This splendid scene unfolded to our west only a few minutes after a a thoroughly pleasing mammatus display to the southeast. We were just inside New Mexico from the Texas border, and under the vast painted skies of the tabletop-flat Llano Estacado. Our senses were awash and aglow in the end of a stormy afternoon, soaking in the feel, sight, sound and smell of a landscape unusually soaked with rain and, for this evening at least, luxuriantly and even excessively moist in defiance of its semiarid climate.
