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.

This afternoon, I went out to check out the weather. The radar looked a bit impressive when I headed out. As I got out there, the storms had dissipated a bit. I caught this panorama north of Crowley, Louisiana. The forecast is favorable for better chasing tomorrow and Saturday.

I decided to do sunset shots this evening. I didn’t regret my decision to do so. It was another incredible sky to witness. It was a blue sky until the afternoon/evening when some clouds showed up. The clouds made the sunset spectacular. I bracketed my shot so I could get all of the color out of it.

This afternoon, I went out chasing some storms. I drove around and got quite a few shots but no lightning. A huge disappointment there but maybe next time. Heading back to the house, I caught this beauty while stopped for utility work on the main highway. The drive home was very windy and heavy rains. No hail thank goodness. I have a sun roof on my car. The best part about the weather today was playing with my youngest daughter in the heavy rain at the house. Fun stuff!!

This evening I went out to get a timelapse of a cloud that looked like it had potential to intensify. It didn’t. I got it fizzling out. I was able to get quite a few sunset shots. It was pretty epic this evening. The clouds helped it out quite a bit. There are chances for storms the rest of the week so I might be able to get storm shots or decent sunsets.

This evening, we went out to get sunset shots at this field of sunflowers. The clouds weren’t as epic as last night but it was still pretty neat. With this edit, I did the initial processing in HDR because I bracketed the shot. When I did the edit in Lightroom, I pulled all the color out except for the sunflowers. I bumped up the saturation and luminance of the sunflowers to give it some pop. I added a couple of textures in Photoshop to finish it up.

Day 192 of my 365 Project

This evening I went out to get sunset shots because of the clouds in the area, I knew it was going to be a nice one. I got the area where I like to get sunset shots and grabbed a few good ones. I may post a couple of those tomorrow since the above shot isn’t of the sunset. While heading home, I noticed lightning in a cloud not too far from where I was at. I went to one of my storm shot locations and got quite a few shots.

This is two shots merged together in Photoshop, edited in Lightroom and finished up in Photoshop. I’m really stoked about this picture. I was able to get the full moon, lightning and the stars in one picture.

This afternoon on my way home from getting groceries, I saw a rainbow in the clouds. I pulled off the road and got a few shots. It was incredibly bright and vibrant. I believe it’s iridescent clouds but I’m not sure. On the edit, I bumped up the vibrancy and saturation to pull out the colors.

This was my view yesterday morning when I took the trash out. I grabbed a few shots and finished getting ready for our road trip. I wasn’t sure if I would get any pictures on the trip. I was wrong. I got some really nice cloud shots in Alabama. I will post again later of the best shots from the drive.
