Playground by Corvidae65 Playground by Corvidae65
I don't remember exactly when this was shot--this year, for sure. I remember the storm and the HUGE shelf that formed right before my very lens. I rememeber how freakin' fast that sucker was moving towards me too :omg: I tried to take a quick panorama of it but it didn't work out and since I am all about the lightning I didn't worry too much about the rest of the storm.

I shot until the shelf was almost on top of me and broke down my tripod and camera and climbed back into my truck just as the gust front hit :thumbsup:

Too bad I didn't get a fantastic capture out of it :lonely:

BTW~I've been insanely busy lately and I'm way behind on messages and deviations--I'll get to them though :thumbsup: so, if you get a message from me that doesn't make any kind of sense :confused: just know that at some point in the past you made a comment to me that I am JUST NOW responding to! :rofl:

Walt :icongood-e-nuf: made the comparison between these two shots--strangely similar, no?

Holy wow,  I can't believe how I only just now have seen this!
But it is gorgeous! :clap:
The composition is awesome, the lightening perfect, and the clouds look so windswept on the side there... well it's just magical, really, a true treasure for certain. :nod:

Thank you :nod: The green color was hail--and this storm had lots of it--not big but lots. The color comes from the sun being behind the storm.

Wow, the pressure in my head instantly rises when I look at the picture (that's how I feel prior to storms and showers - low blood pressure, I guess) - the photo looks very real. And it's a great catch, congrats. :)
