Elm Springs Blast 2

The Elm Springs storm continued to surge eastward, surfing its own outflow down those lowest reaches of the Belle Fourche River valley before reaching the Cheyenne River. All the while, it occasionally smacked the countryside with a really big spark, two of which I was able to capture in still photography.  Soon after this shot, we left our post because of the storm’s passing north of us into a vast road void.  The storm soon became even more disorganized and absorbed into a broader area of convection, ending the chase day early and allowing plenty of time to get dinner and lodging near the Badlands.
