Earlier this year, I chased storms in and around the beautiful Gypsum Hills, Kansas with my friend Jim Reed. This was one beautiful sunset, the colors and the lightning was amazing. I loved this shot, but the power lines always bothered me. I left them in when I posted this shot. For fun, I spend a couple of hours taking the lines out with Photoshop CS6 and my Wacom Intuos tablet, must tools for detail work like this. I like this image it so much better. Drag the slider back and forth to see the difference.

Beautiful lightning display from this tornado warned supercell outside of Hodgeman, Kansas earlier this year on May 13, 2013. This strike seemed to move in slow motion, striking the ground and returning to the clouds and forking out again. Amazing to watch! One of my favorites from my Clouds 365 Project.
