Water Color Skies winning photo by Kayla Hinds of Boise City

Hinds took the water tower photo at sunset as storm clouds were building in the horizon of her parents’ farm north of Keyes on June 5. Her parents are Larry and Jamin Hinds. The water tower has stood on their farm since Kayla’s great-grandparents lived there. It was severely damaged in the June 30 summer storm that knocked out power to thousands. She provided the below image showing the tower before and after the storm.
