Bands of Light
[Part 1 of 2] After a beautiful supercell stage, this storm linked up with several others and formed a prodigiously sweeping panorama of tiers and striations across the southwest Kansas plains. Light of internal and external sources illuminated the wide-angle scene, starting with the pastel glows of twilight at left, blending slowly into diffused flashes of in-cloud lightning at right. There wasn't a great deal of time to stand and marvel at this grand display of atmospheric beauty, as often is true with onrushing walls of outflow and heavy rain; but appreciate it we did!
