Wow, such a cool scene and a bit ominous too.

Thank you, David. Approaching storms can be threatening unless you can gauge their distance, speed and intensity and determine the likelihood of personal harm is high without taking evasive action. Storm chasing is always a calculated risk. None here.

Very moody - and I like how the sun’s rays add a note of optimism.

Thank you, Mike. The scene stopped me in my tracks, figuratively, as I was heading down toward Glenn Canyon that morning and I couldn’t resist probing the possibilities.
