Enduring the Elements (2019)

Reagan County Texas Permian Basin

Enduring the Elements was photographed after the passage of a late Spring severe thunderstorm near Rankin Texas. The image features a pump jack on an older location drilled around 1980. The cloud formation known as mamatus is associated with anvil formation in server thunderstorms where large hail is present.
