Hail Storm Over the Prairie: Weekly Photo Challenge-Landscape

Yesterday, a severe storm front moved through the Midwest, bringing with it strong winds and dark clouds racing over blue skies. I felt determined to capture the storm and headed to a local park known for its rolling prairie grasses and gentle hills. After driving to the park as quickly as I could, I saw that the storm was moving in faster than I expected. I left my tripod behind in the car, and instead grabbed a great big old pink umbrella to shield my camera from the rain.  Holding tight to the umbrella with one hand and the camera with the other, I photographed the storm line as it blew in over the prairie. This is my favorite shot.  I liked it best in black and white as this captures the gloom of the moment as hail was about to hit. The hail forced me to stop shooting and retreat to my car.
