I didn’t have to go storm chasing today. The storms came to me. My wife and I went and picked up a family member when we noticed the weather getting very interesting. My wife pulled up the radar app on my phone and there was lots of nasty stuff all around us. She watched a particular storm system heading towards our house so I drove us home pretty quickly so we could see it as it was coming in. This is one of the shots I was able to catch before the heavy rains and wind forced us inside. This was quite impressive as it was coming in.
This afternoon, I decided to get sunset shots since it’s been a while since I last took sunset shots. My wife and I had to go next door and talk with her mom for a bit and check on our girls. They spent the night over there last night and we haven’t seen them since yesterday afternoon late. When we drove up, we noticed some storm clouds to the south. I got shots while she went in the house. After a few minutes, we drove to the powerplant to get sunset shots. It’s pretty open to get shots so we stayed for a few minutes. I kept noticing the storm to the south which was pretty impressive as the sun was going down. We drove to one of my spots where I check out storms to get some shots. This is one of the better shots I got. According to radar, the storm was a couple of hours south of me. We were impressed by the massiveness of the clouds.
This afternoon, we didn’t have huge storms like we have had the past few days. I noticed the sun was being blocked by clouds, so I went outside to check out the sky. I couldn’t see the full extent of this at my house. My wife and I took a little drive to see what we could see. I found an area that didn’t have any trees in the way and this is what we saw. I had to do shoot in portrait mode and did a panorama to get whole storm cell. It was magnificent.
I updated my About Me page today. I added that I’m a veteran owned and operated business and that 10% of my sales will be going to the TACP Association. There is a link to the TACP Association for further information about them.
This afternoon, we had storms popping around us again. There was lightning, heavy rain, and lots of wind. It was so cool. In between the rain showers, I went out to get some shots. It was a pretty epic sky again. As I was getting pictures, I noticed the clouds to my north, so I drove to check it out. This is what I saw. The storm cell was so big, it wouldn’t fit in my camera lens. I had to shoot a panorama to get the whole thing. It was massive. I’m glad I drove a little bit to see what was north of me.
This afternoon, we had some pretty strong storms come through the area. I got some shots as it passed by the house. I had my camera body wrapped in a plastic bag with the lens poking out. It kept my camera body dry while I got some shots. When my wife got home from work, we did a little storm chasing while the storm was heading north. We got to the cemetery just outside of town and had a wonderful view of the storm. Lightning was popping like crazy (no lightning capture) and the clouds were epic. I took over 600 shots today from the storms coming in and the backside of the storm. It was a pretty cool day for shooting.
This afternoon, my wife and I went storm chasing. There were some impressive storms in the area, so we checked them out. This beauty was east of me. I got a nice panorama shot of it. We chased for over an hour. We saw a bunch of lightning and lots of rain. I’m not sure if chasing will be on the agenda for tomorrow since there is play practice.
This afternoon, there were some nice storms that came through and gave us some much needed rain. I noticed these clouds after checking the mail. It was pretty epic looking. I believe the forecast is for more storms tomorrow. There is no play practice so I might be able to go chasing. I sure hope so.
This afternoon, my wife and youngest daughter were heading to town when we noticed this wonderful storm cell. I found a place to pull off the road so I could get some shots. When we started back towards town again, it started raining really hard. It was a really nice and impressive storm.
This morning, we had to make a trip to Crowley, Louisiana to pick up our adopted son, who is in the play we are involved with. On the way there, I noticed this very beautiful cloud formation. I found a place on the side of the road to pull off and get some shots. I couldn’t get all of it shooting landscape, so I got a shot in portrait mode and got everything. It was really cool to see.
This afternoon, we had a nice storm come up from the southeast and gave us a nice lightning show. I got a timelapse of it but it’s too big for me to upload right now. I caught this after I finished the timelapse and before my battery died on me. The rain chances are pretty good here in southern Louisiana for the next week so I might be able to get some lightning. I’ll be busy with play practices and working on my photography business.
