    After making to Lamar and watching some towering cumulus clouds build into a moderate rotating shower that never gained any steam, I debated about going north. However, the decision to remain where I was quickly made for me as that storm to the north died off. Now all that remained was a few thunderstorms to the SE of Lamar. These two storms were producing a decent amount of lightning so I decided to go up on the highest hill I could find and maybe get some lightning shots.

    As the storm grew closer I could start to make out some of the storms structure. The lightning started to pick up and a huge shelf cloud was becoming more and more visible. I was admittedly getting excited at this point, as the storm was quite photogenic. We had frequent cloud to ground lightning, some heavy rain and small hail, but the story of the day was the magnificent colors combined with the storm placing itself almost perfectly over the giant wind turbines at the Lamar wind farm. I plan on going back several more times this year May-June.
