Updraft Geyser

A dying plume of a thunderstorm's updraft shriveled away in the southern sky, its bottom cut off from view by the crest of a vegetated sand dune, giving the illusion of a geyser erupting from just past the ridge. The warm late afternoon light accentuated the dunes' muscular contours and shortgrass upholstery, giving a rich texture to this special Nebraska Sandhills scene.
