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.
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.
This afternoon, we had some really nice storms come through while I was at play practice. I wasn’t able to go chasing which was a huge bummer. The rain was very heavy, the lightning and thunder was really loud, and my radar had lots of red (bad stuff) showing. After finally making it home, there was some thunder. One of the thunder sounds sounded like an explosion. My son and adopted son went outside to check things out and didn’t see anything. My adopted son was leaving when he noticed smoke in the distance. My wife and I were heading out to supper so we to check it out and this was the closest we could get to it. Lightning struck a tank battery according to one of our friends who works for the parish. We drove back by about an hour later and there were lots of blue and red lights where the road was blocked off.
This afternoon when I was going to pick up my wife, I saw this nice storm cell to my south. I stopped and grabbed a few shots before picking her up from work and driving to Lafayette to do some shopping. It was good to see some storms that I was able to get pictures of.
This afternoon before going to play practice, I went outside to check the skies. I looked to the west and noticed the above picture. I grabbed my camera from the car and got a few shots. I was able to get a couple of storm shots and a rainbow (which didn’t seem to come out that well). The skies were pretty epic today. I’ll be glad when I can spend more time chasing.
Today was a good day for storms. I had storms popping up here at the house so I didn’t have to drive to get some shots. The storms came to me. This afternoon, I was working on my lines for the play I’m in when I noticed more storms starting to form. I grabbed my camera and got a few shots. This was an interesting rain dump so I got a few shots. I will post more pictures of the storms I captured later on. I thought this was pretty impressive.
