Late Summer Thunder (and Lightning)

Ominous clouds and rain ahead  of the setting sun over an abandoned farmstead between Spencer and Salem, SD.
The evening of September 4th saw a swift moving thunderstorm system move through the southeastern part of South Dakota.  The 2012 storm season didn't amount to much this year so I decided to drive west to meet the front and see if I could get any interesting photos.  This post consists of my best shots of the night. Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for stopping by!
