Weather Worn

Partial solar eclipse on October 22nd
Thursday's partial solar eclipse disappears into dark storm clouds rolling in behind a weather-weary grain silo and rusty railroad tracks. What began as blue sky and distant clouds turned into fat raindrops soon after the eclipse faded from view. 

Wind and rain chased me out of the mountains and eastward across Montana. I found a small patch of blue sky and this abandoned grain silo near Kevin, just south of the Canadian border. With a tight deadline, I was unable to find anything "wild and free" that was tall enough to include in a solar eclipse photo. I'll try to do better next time - on August 21st in 2017.
