Cloud Power

Summer brings some pop up storms at the end of the day when the humid air starts to cool. They often form over Lake Michigan to the west and slowly move west, reaching up until they flatten.

Looking west from the house, we get to watch these spectacular white towers slide across the landscape. Oftentimes, we hear the rain before we feel it.

A landscape photo, two thirds of the top of the image are dominated by the sky against rolling pasture. An enormous cloud is towering from the horizon on the right side of the image. Rays of setting sunlight are piercing the left edge, illuminating the cloud from behind.
Clouds tower in the west.

The late day storms are my favorite because the setting sun is still able to backlight the delicate edge of the cloud, reminding me that storms come and go.
