After photographing the legendary Bennington, Kansas tornado I was ending my day in Russell when I noticed this sky developing above. I raced north of town to find a suitable location and was able to capture this scene just as the sun slipped below the horizon. Crepuscular rays develop when clouds cast shadows as sunlight strikes them at dawn or dusk.
