This evening, the director of the play we are involved with wanted pictures. She is going to do an article for the local paper about how the community theater is a family affair. My whole family, five of us, are involved in the play. Three of the actors in the play has/had family members involved with the play. After the picture, my in-laws and family went to get a bite to eat in town. We noticed the clouds were building quite nicely so I grabbed a few shots in town. After eating, I checked the radar and the storms had dissipated. No storm spotting this evening. Maybe tomorrow since there isn’t a performance. I can only hope.
This afternoon, my wife, my “adopted” son, and myself were sitting outside enjoying the exceptional weather we have down here in southern Louisiana. I grabbed my 75-300mm lens and sat in my chair to get shots. One of the firepits we use is full of water. I looked down at it and saw this frog. I missed the first chance to get pictures. I kept watching and it finally popped it’s head up again. I got a few shots before it swam away again. It was a very cool to see it.
This rose has been in bloom for a few days now. I went to check it out today and this nice little bug was on it. I was able to get a few shots of it. I love catching little critters on the flowers.
This afternoon, we had some really nice storms come through. My wife and I went out to see what was heading our way. This shot was taken when the storm got fairly close to us. It’s two shots merged together. There was lots of lightning but I wasn’t able to catch any. Maybe next time.
I caught this storm cell to the south of me yesterday afternoon before heading to opening night of the play my whole family is involved with. We didn’t get home until really late so I wasn’t able to post my picture. There is a decent chance of thunderstorms today, so I might get some shots before heading to the theater for the play. I sure hope so.
We had our opening night tonight of The Diary of Anne Frank. It’s been a long day. I’ll post my picture tomorrow.
Today, we had scattered showers in the area. I was looking outside to see if any had popped up around us and I noticed a couple of them. I grabbed a few shots and this was the best one I saw. The weather is suppose to get cooler soon. I can’t wait. The humidity and temperatures have been terrible.
Tonight is our last dress rehearsal for the play my whole family is involved with. Tomorrow night is opening night. We are ready to get this going and finished.
I looked outside the window and noticed the sun wasn’t shining. I wasn’t sure what was going on so I grabbed my camera and went outside. The sun was behind a cloud shooting out sunrays. I grabbed a few shots. I love it when the sun is behind a cloud. It can be so breathtaking as it illuminates the cloud and sunrays are coming out the sides.
Early yesterday morning, my oldest daughter had a television interview at a local television station to promote the play we are in. We had to be at the station for 6:15 so it was a very early morning. We got there and the interview went very well. On the way home, we got to see the sunrise. I stopped and got a few shots. There was some ground fog and the sunrise was beautiful.
I was helping cook supper when I heard some thunder pretty close. My wife went to check out where it was. She said there were storms to the east and southeast. I went outside to check it out myself. When I stepped outside and looked east, I saw a huge anvil cloud. I grabbed my camera and got a few shots. I then heard thunder to the south and went up the road and saw the above view. I had to get a panorama of it because it was so epic. I did do a bit of storm chasing and got a bunch of shots hoping to catch some lightning. I did get one shot but it’s not a very good shot.
