A large, tornadic thunderstorm fired up about 50 miles west of Hays, KS around noon today. By the time I got out to shoot this GigaPan it had developed quite a huge anvil cloud and was northwest of town and headed towards Nebraska. If you compare the wheat in this field with the one I shot yesterday (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/79940/) you'll note that this field is somewhat darker in color because it's a red wheat. The breeze was blowing from the south and fairly gusty, so rather than go for detail I backed off and shot a smaller image. -- Ron Schott
