Badlands Atmospheric Chaos by Aric-Jaye

Atmospheric chaos at Badlands National Park in South Dakota .
As the glowing sun was rising in the east, the upper painterly cloud layer was moving slowly westward. The middle, rain promising, dark cloud layer was moving slowly eastward as a fast moving, all consuming fog layer was also moving eastward, engulfing everything in its path in a matter of minutes. It was truly a beautiful spectacle of nature to behold
