There's a time in the late evening when the light gets just right for the subject, but I had no forground. Then suddenly the scene opened up to a lush green field with hay rolls... almost too good to be true. Guide Rock, Nebraska 15 July, 2015

And every time I looked on a weather radar I wanted to turn back and go home. But some weather models indicated good conditions in Germany, so it was possible that the cluster will become more intense here. After the cluster crossed the German border the activity strengthened and the system began to shear eastward - all good signs which validated the weather model calculations.  Shortly after 5 AM the south flank of the system arrived at my spot. Here is how it looked like shortly before sunrise - a very photogenic updraft and lightnings, which made the moment more special.

What I love is the gentle humid mist over the bean field. Taken in Spring Arbor MI.
