Nebular Cloudscape

Nebular Cloudscape

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.
