Keystone Shelf

It was no time for casual crappie jiggin’ in the flooded trees.  Formerly a supercell, this storm was overtaken by the southern end of a strengthening squall line as its outflow and shelf cloud surged toward the western reaches of an overfilled, muddy Keystone Lake.  The spring-green forest, flooded by water laden with red-brown clay, and the ominous slate-gray hues of the approaching storm, presented a fascinating and quickly appreciated composition.  I mean quickly.  Within minutes, it was time to bust back south to avoid the firehose of wind and rain.
