This is view from a tower in one of the many locales in and around Gettysburg, PA. The National Military Park here is well worth a day’s exploration to learn about one of the most crucial Civil War battles that took place over three hot July days in 1863. This vantage point happens to be on the auto-tour of the Gettysburg military park.
This is a wild Nebraska sunset over a soybean field in Hastings, Nebraska.  I took this across the street from the house of my meteorologist friend, Jeremy. He could give you a better idea of what’s going on in the sky, but I like this picture for the contrast between the plants and the clouds and the powerlines give it some context as well.
Here are some of Colorado’s purple mountain majesties obscured by clouds. I like the symmetry of the clouds above and the dip in the foreground below.
A windswept plaza of a well-designed rest stop off southbound I-25 in my homeland of Colorado.  I had driven through a robust storm before and this was actually a gentler scene.
Later that afternoon, I pulled over in Northern New Mexico to get a couple shots of the changing skies.  The stop sign beckons one to stop and consider both the sun and the storm in this vista.
Driving southwest from Holbrook Arizona to the Phoenix area, you are going to experience a significant elevation, terrain and temperature change.   I was blessed to capture these three pictures at the same stop off highway 260, northeast of Payson. I had a safe place to pull over and pointed my cameras in different directions and got these.
