Yet another storm image from the tornadic Limbscomb storm this year, but this was just before sunset when the shelf was pushing east towards the Oklahoma state line. Lucky lightning in this one.

Be sure to check out my company,! It’s a great opportunity for anyone who wants to chase storms to improve their lightning photography skills and see awe-inspiring photogenic storms.

    Thanks for the comment. The “yellow ground” are crops, I’m going to guess it’s either wheat or corn since this was the Texas Panhandle. It’s a circle due to the irrigation equipment that is used to water the crops, I’ve done a lot of traveling around the world and this is the only country where I have seen irrigation techniques like that. It looks pretty neat from the air as well because the ground is a bunch of circles, instead of the square patterns that you seen in most other places.
