AUSTIN (KXAN) — Hundreds of KXAN viewers have emailed beautiful wildflower photos to us this spring. But, though there is no prize involved, the First Warning Weather team says it would probably award first prize to this photo taken during Monday’s thunderstorm in the Round Rock area.

Photographer, storm chaser, and self-described weather nerd Jason Weingart captured the perfect springtime combination–a thunderstorm approaching a field of wildflowers–even framing in a beautiful church for good measure.
