Sunset, 8/8/22

We get some good ones out here in the Midwest. Note the prismatic action at the top of the cumulonimbus, by the way.

  1. Beautiful! Friend of mine grew up on a Kansas farm watching stuff like this. It made him get a degree in Meteorology when he grew up!

  2. Maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to Martha Wells’ The Serpent Sea, but all I can see there is the head of the giant leviathan that the city is built on!

  3. Wonderful photo. The “prismatic action” indicates that them’s ice crystals up thar.

  4. Also, I’m not sure that’s a giant leviathan looming out of the cloud–just check Google Images for “Wolf Eel.” I’ll admit that the first time I encountered one while SCUBA diving, it was suddenly warmer inside my wet suit (TMI?)
