Nature Walk: Evening Thunderstorm

By Taylor on August 19, 2013 in Blog


Cumulonimbus clouds that form when cold fronts and warm, moist air collide can reach 60,000 feet (12 miles) in height and may be visible for more than 100 miles. In evening light these clouds reveal their different heights as the sun sinks below the western horizon.  A mirror reflection in quiet water gives balance to the scene.

What do you like best about summer, evening thunderstorms? Is it the smell of rain, the intriguing lightening or beautiful sights like this?
