This was the development phase of a huge storm that built about 10-17 miles from where I stood. It eventually formed tornadoes and wiped out the town of Holly, Colorado. This is just a little piece of the storm.

This next picture was toward the end of the storm. I took a picture of what looked like mamatmus clouds, but what the camera saw was amazing. You can see it wrapping around like it's forming a twister.

The storm was in it's fury and it had gone very dark. The clouds were very low to the ground.

PS..this storm took place in March 2007. Photos were shot from Lamar, Colorado. One person died in that storm.

Toward the end of the storm, I turned around and faced west..caught the sun going down.

Honestly, this was THE most awesome storm I've ever enjoyed. I'd just bought my first digital camera that day..paid a whole $20.00 for it, and I didn't have a memory card..didn't know to get one.

So, when the storm started, it developed rapidly. I'd snap off several pix, run in the house and unload to the pc, then run back outside..and everything had changed. Snapped some more, ran inside to unload, run back out and again, everything changed! I think that went on for a couple of hours. I have tons of them but just put up a few.

It came up in a line from the south to the north, but it was also expanding east and west so it came pretty darn close to where I was standing, but we never actually got any effects from the storm...just the excellent visuals.

By the time the sun went down, and it got dark, we were able to watch the helicoptors running back and forth from the town of Holly to Lamar which was in a bowl just to my south. I was on a country road on a hill to the north.

These are grainy due to the low capacity of the camera I used. I had it set for the best quality that that particular camera was capable of. Therefore I was frustrated and eventually got a much better camera..a canon digital. I've video taped fireworks in the dark with that one lol!

Temu, now you know why I need to get my helmet painted! I LOVE storm photography, and yes, it IS addictive! There's always something neat to point the camera at. Course, now that I'm in Wichita, KS, I'm a tad bit leary. I don't have a good viewing location and I do like some space between me, lightning, and tornadoes!

Nice photos Judi,
I am always awestruck by the colours that the Lord paints the sky with. I love the western skyline here when its getting to dusk and there are all kinds of blues, mauves and orange and yellows going on.
Got a nice digital camera ( canon d350 eos ) with 2 good lenses for £ 10.00, thats ten quid.
No decent views round here to snap tho, I am dying to take some pics to show you guys though I cant compete with the scenery and its all a bit bland.

Yerami, yes do take more pics. I bet you can get shots that are not bland at all that would be interesting to all of us. Sometimes it's not even a scene. Maybe it's the pattern of mortar blobbing out of an interesting brick wall, maybe it's curling smoke billowing out of a cluster smoke stacks on a frosty morning, maybe it's a tight horizontal shot of a bunch of people's feet all lined up in different shoes as they wait for the bus, maybe it's a close up of a wrinkled hand with gnarled knuckles tying knots on a tzitzit.

The every day, shot in a different way, is never bland.

Can't wait to see more from your corner of the globe!

Your scenery might be bland to YOU, but it's new to US! And a black and white or sepia tone can bring drama to a picture.
