Day 206 of my 365 Project

This afternoon after going swimming, this was my view. I had to get a couple of shots because it was so awesome to see. The clouds were building all afternoon but didn’t do much where I was. The forecast is favorable for storm chasing next week. I sure hope so.

Day 205 of my 365 Project

This afternoon, the storms were popping south of where I live. I went and did some investigating to see what they were doing. I got a quite a few shots but nothing spectacular where I was. I couldn’t go any further south because of potential hail in the storm cells. As I was heading home, I noticed the clouds to my west. This is one of them. The sunrays and rain wall looked pretty impressive.

Here are more shots from the storm chase last night. One of my favorite ones from the chase is the third shot. It’s what I believe is an epic shot of the sky.

Last night, I went out storm chasing and got 102 shots. These are the best ones from the chase. I will post more later today after I’ve gone through and edited some more. I was trying to post this last night but my power went out. It’s back on so I can take care of editing more pictures and posting more awesomeness from last night.

Day 204 of my 365 Project

I went swimming this afternoon and saw this magnificent set of clouds to my southeast. I checked the radar and they were down by the coast, which is a couple of hours away. I drove a few minutes to one of my favorite spots to get storm shots and got a few pictures. I thought the rice bins would be a nice addition to the picture.

Day 203 of my 365 Project

I got this shot about two hours after sunrise. The clouds were pretty amazing so I got a couple of shots. Today was a short day of shooting for me. I only got two shots with my camera. This one and another one of the clouds. Tomorrow will hopefully be better since there is a nice chance of storms in the afternoon.

Update on my new page

HDR, Old Car, On the road

I have added some vehicles on my new Vehicles page. I have a 1931 Ratrod, a 1960 Pink Cadillac, a Roadster, and an old lowered Pickup truck. I changed the format of the page so you can see the pictures better.

I will be adding more vehicles later. I hope you enjoy what you see.

Thanks for the support y’all have given me. I really appreciate it.

I got an email this morning about using reflections in your pictures. One of the pictures in the post was an eye. I decided to try it and this is what I got. I used my macro lens to get this shot. I was able to get the reflection of the sky and our rose bush. This is one shot I need to work on.

Day 201 of my 365 Project

It’s been a while since I did a Self Shot Sunday so I decided to give a shot (see what I did there) today. I had this tutorial, How to Create a Pencil Sketch in Photoshop, in my email this morning so I gave it a try. I’ve made some changes to my physical features recently and I wanted to show them. Yes, I now have a mohawk and I shaved off my mustache. I’m going to get more ink in the future when I get extra money. When I get my new ink, I will show y’all what I got.

Day 200 of my 365 Project

This afternoon late, I went for a drive to find my picture of the day. The last time I went out storm chasing, I saw a building that looked like an abandoned building. At night, it looked pretty impressive. It wasn’t impressive during the day. On the way, I saw this tree and got a few shots of it. I processed it in Photomatix, Lightroom and Photoshop.
