August 2 chase and St. Louis sunset

I burned a vacation day to chase an MCV/warm front setup moving through southern/central Illinois on Thursday. It was not a very good setup, but it was close and convenient. I intercepted storms in the Litchfield area, north of St. Louis. There were some dramatic shelf clouds (which I never got a chance to get out of rain to shoot stills of), but the storms were severely undercut and didn't have any chance of producing. The CG lightning was quite good and frequent, but mostly inside the rain and uncooperative. I did not fire off a single still until arriving back in St. Louis, where conditions for a good sunset were promising. It wasn't the best of sunsets, but I took home these three to add to the main gallery.
