Nice composition well captured
I have a fond passion for Lenticular clouds, that is, set aside from the mighty and majesterial Anvil clouds – my first cloud love!.
I find great liking to your photograph – it is really pleasing in no small way.
Thanks for putting this wonder onto the CAS Gallery for us to enjoy.
More info about cloudburst’s here..
This photo reminds me of a very recently shown on various media of a bloke in Alberta, Canada, passively mowing his small back garden lawn seemingly unaware of the approaching and formidable tornadao approaching fast.
Well, it defies something! I think my priorities would be something rather different in the same circumstance! Sod the lawn mowing – it could all be totally destroyed in seconds making the bloke’s work rather puny and of no consequence!
I was quite disappointed to find the truth about the picture:- the guy’s wife, who took the photograph, explained the situation.
It seems that the tornado was, at the time of the photograph, approximately 2 miles away, visibly decreasing in strength, and moving quickly away from the mowing man.
As for the microburst in the photo above – I always wonder how “micro” it feels when you are under it.
Why is there a picture of a stranger in my Avatar space? That’s not me. Who’s that?
David, I later heard that this burst dropped 4 inches of rain. Thankfully it missed the city of Laramie … and us!
Thanks for your informative comment – it is appreciated.
That you say, the bloke’s wife took the photo and the tornado was some 2 miles away, but heck, tornado’s can easily outpace a car and can change direction with alarming speed . I have seen many a film footage from “Storm Chasers” and in one video the guys were being angrily chased by a tornado. The car was belting down a highway at some 100 mph – the guys in the car saying to the driver, “Drive faster, you f*********** idiot! This thing is upon us! Put your foot down, you sod!”
