Sunset through Core
An otherwise uneventful storm-observing day ended in an unexpectedly beautiful way, with the warm glows of the setting sun diffused through a rain core just dense enough to smudge the orb, but not to obscure it. Underneath, only a distant center-pivot irrigator and a small, solitary tree broke the flat plane of the high plains. As long as there is no hail within (and there wasn't), this is a welcome sight for the dryland farmer.
