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.

Storm shots

The storm chasing this afternoon was very interesting.  We drove from Crowley, Louisiana to east of Jennings, Louisiana to check out storms. I was able to get some shots of really strong storms before having to drive away pretty quickly. It got pretty interesting at times. We saw some low level rotation right over us. It was raining so we couldn’t get shots and I had to get out of there before it decided to drop on us.

The two above shots were caught in the Branch, Louisiana.

Day 176 of my 365 Project

This afternoon while heading home from town, I noticed this storm front. I stopped on the side of the main highway and got a few shots. Because this was so cool looking, I decided not to use textures. This shot is a three shot panorama. I really enjoyed capturing this as it was coming in.
