TOP TEN WINNER in the The Sky’s the Limit challenge, hosted by the “Through the eye of a Lens” group.
A few days ago, the Flathead Valley was hit by a tempestuous thunderstorm. Many parts of the valley had 1 inch hailstones. Fortunately, we were in the middle and most of the storm passed around us. I was able to take this photo of the back edge of the storm.
I’m terrified of thunder storms and seeing the beams of light behind the clouds had a calming effect on me.
