Day 266 of my 365 Project

Today was an awesome fall day here in southern Louisiana. As the day progressed, I noticed high clouds in the area. It had been a while since my last sunset, I went out and shot it this evening. It was gorgeous. This is a four shot panorama in portrait mode. I really love getting sunset shots.

Day 261 of my 365 Project

Sorry for the late post. I had a play performance this evening. After the performance, I checked my radar app and there were some really nice thunderstorms in the area. As we were driving home, we didn’t see any lightning. When we got home, I kept checking the skies for lightning. Nothing for a little bit. After about 20 – 30 minutes of being at home, I saw some flashes. Melody and I dropped the kids off next door and went to one of my storm spotting areas to see what was going on. As we got to the spot to set up, the storm stopped producing lightning. Not pleased but I got a few shots. Maybe next time. Maybe…

Around lunch time, I went to pick up my wife from her part time job so we could go eat lunch and do some shopping. As we were heading to town, I noticed the clouds getting a bit heavier. When we turned to head to town, I saw this beauty and stopped to get some shots. I wasn’t able to go storm chasing today (yet again) but the chances for storms are pretty the next couple of days. Maybe, just maybe I can do a bit of chasing.

Day 180 of my 365 Project

This morning when I got up and looked outside and noticed this line of mushrooms in the grass. Unless something epic came up today, this was going to be my picture of the day. I got a couple of shots of it from different angles to see which one I wanted to use. I added three textures in Photoshop to get the above effect.

Something cool happened to me yesterday late I want to share. On Facebook, the National Weather Service in Shreveport, Louisiana had a contest to submit weather pictures and they would use one of them as their cover photo. Well, I won. Here is the shot that won.
