Golden Prairies

76 1


We were out sitting in a field near Olds for a few hours after analyzing the weather models the previous day expecting some serious weather. We sat waiting patiently for a few hours but we were thinking it may be a bust (dud day). Fortunately around 6 PM storms started to fire off of the foothills and blasted right through the cap. We chased a couple of little storms and met up with a couple of fellow chasers for a chat before things really started to take off. This storm started off as a giant squall like that developed a beautiful striated shelf cloud with pancake layers. We were lucky to get a gap when the fields turned to pure gold just before sunset and I managed to capture this shot with my drone. Its a little blown out but I kinda like it.
