Photos ~ A Late Summer Storm Cell

After I turned north on my bike ride home from work I noticed some sinister looking clouds off further in that direction. After and hour or so, sure enough, I heard thunder rumbling from above. A couple impressive cells glided past; one to the north and one to the south. I hopped in my car and snapped some photos where N. Stevens bends into 46th. Now this is real weather. Didn't get any shots of the stunning lightning strikes I saw (note to self: get neutral density filter) like the pics from last summer but here's what the scene looked like. Enjoy!
