Storm Chasing in Nevada
At Topaz Lake on the California/Nevada border, +Lori Hibbett
and I had a storm pass by earlier this month. We decided to chase it east into Smith Valley to see if we could catch some lightning photos. We didn't catch the storm there; it continued over the next set of mountains to sit south of Yerington. So we headed through Wilson Canyon and headed south, ending up in the Cambridge Hills as the skies cleared towards the setting sun, and sunset color spread under the storm clouds.
The storm was to the west, the sun was shining under it from the east, and we were under the edge, which ran north and south. We had some great opportunities as the sun went from yellow to orange, and the clouds took on shades at the blue end of the spectrum.
We stuck around to capture a time-lapse of the clouds moving as the storm dissipated, and as the nearly-full moon rose behind them.
