On the return leg of a one-day trip to the desert, this extraordinary storm system accompanied me for part of the drive home. I took this out the window, with my left hand, while driving at unsafe speeds.... I tried cropping out the truck on the far right, but it didn't look right, so I minimized it with a bit of vignetting.
