Prairie Storm

Prairie Storm

There's a moment right before a big storm when the clouds are rolling in and the lighting changes to an eerie white/grey color. Everything becomes illuminated, and small details and textures pop.

These are the electric moments when it's exciting to be outside and experience nature on the move.

When I look at this now, the experience of standing in the howling winds and swirling snow of the soon to arrive storm comes rushing back.

I can't begin to imagine how hard life was for the people who lived here 100 years ago, who endured storms like this on a regular basis without the conveniences of modern life. 

I've been to this prairie dozens of times before, but only in this rare moment did all things combine to create this dramatic black and white image.
