Around 3:00 PM the cloud cover at Farmington began to break-up and I though I would check-out Antelope Island. Antelope Island is a state park and refuge known for its birdlife, especially along the 7 mile causeway to the island. As I drove along the causeway I found it to be particularly void of life. When I arrived at the island itself little had changed. Where the causeway connected to the island there was an abundance of Yellow-headed Blackbirds, but that was about it.
As I drove around the island I could see massive thunderstorms that had formed over the Great Salt Lake. Using my I-pad, I opened the “Weather Bug” apt and saw that the storms stretched 130 degrees from the southwest to the northeast. Bear River Refuge, which lay north of Antelope Island was under a torrential downpour. This shot is of the southern tip of the storm as seen from White Rock Bay. This photo is a color digital image, which I converted to black-and-white in Photoshop.
