Menacing Pass Through
Brevard, North Carolina (August 2013)

I may have shared a black and white version of this panoramic view of this passing storm front before, but the colorful weather shots that I've seen in my stream lately had me revisiting it.

Pine Pollen + Light Rain
Durham, North Carolina (2014)

Of all people, one of our local news stations interviewed a car wash manager  about whether it is smart to repeatedly rinse the pollen off of vehicles so as not to let it damage the paint. It's a good thing I drive an old car with a bad paint job, but I'll leave the roof of our house and the sidewalks to the rain gods.

Composite Practice
Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada (2006)

I created both images (of the scene, and of the minke whale), but just wanted to practice some composite skills. :)

An absolutely incredible storm chase yesterday with +Kelly DeLay   and +James Brandon  On a day were patience paid off, we ended up on this beastly supercell known as a "mother ship" (because of it's UFO appearance) at sunset. This image was taken using a Nikon 14mm, and it still wasn't wide enough to fit the entire storm in the frame. Shot just north of Courtney, Oklahoma. +National Geographic  +Landscape Photography Show  #weather   #supercell   #stormchase

Blue Hydrangea, Slow Eruption
Durham, North Carolina (2013)

Our hydrangeas probably won't be blooming until sometime in May, but their leaves are now steadily multiplying in number.

In about a month or so, the snakes of Umstead State Park will be out en masse... as these northern water snakes were last May.
