Wow, the sky this evening is incredible. The problem is, even with a wide lens, I can’t begin to capture it all. So, I’ll give you a taste. Nearly continuous thunder is occurring as I (safely) sit on my patio composing this blog posting. Here is what the stop looks like from top to bottom (imagine the photos overlapping):
Below is the radar. The storm I am photographing is southeast of Bel Aire. In the photo immediately above, you can see the thunderstorms farther south in the far background.
Tonight’s storm is a feast for the senses. Hearing the thunder. Seeing the roiling changes in lighting and structure (not to mention lightning), feeling the rustle of the wind and changes in temperature. Smelling the rain in the air.
Me, I’ll take this over mountains any time.
