Layered Weather

04-22-2011
This was shot at sunset, there were strong winds and it was raining. The colors are just as they came out of the camera. Several hours later there were tornadoes all around the area.

Flooded Field

Heavy rains flooded many parts of the bottom land along the Missouri River.
Farmers are several weeks behind planting their crops.
Some areas, like this one, have become a marshy wetland for all types of birds.
