Shortly after retiring, I took off on what I had hoped to be a 12 week cross country Tran AM ride from Oregon to Virginia.
Two weeks straight of riding in rain left me drained, so I stopped at the half way point in Pueblo, Colorado.
But stormy weather brings interesting skies, resulting in some good pictures.
All images were taken with my 16 megapixel Fuji X100S and its 23 mm (35 mm equivilent) fixed prime lens.
