I really don’t know how to explain this one. I walked out of the restaurant, took one look at the sky, and sprinted to the van to grab my camera. Two hours of thunderstorms and a tornado system moving up from the southwest left the sky churning with clouds, at times pale gold, at others a vicious burning orange. I spent the next 45 minutes running through Superior, past scrap yards, bar parking lots, and through the massive granary complex on Dock Street. Each photo just kind of led to the next in an adrenaline-fueled rush; I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to witness a storm system like this move overhead at sunset.

I don’t know how to handle the color correction for these images: Stormstack is basically a flat white-balance with the saturation brought down, and it’s still a little too orange. All I can tell you is that yes, the sky did look like that. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.
