As the sun's rays bled their blues out through the longest possible fetch of atmosphere, they cast their warm remainder across these convective cloud turrets located high up the side of a slender storm tower. Ghostly vaporous permutations of light and shadow projected across a skyscape that evolved wondrously minute by minute. Zooming in with eyes, mind and lens revealed otherwordly patterns of nature more in common with Hubble telescope images of far-away nebulae than with the humble prairie earth beneath. The visual delights began anew at night, in the form of a whole-storm lightning show from a different area of storm development.
