Storms from the air

Oh I’m on vacation, need a nap, don’t want to be on the computer too much, but I took a couple of shots of some severe weather in the midwest as we twisted and turned in the air to avoid all of it.

No matter what I see on the ground…there is something so majestic about flying close to a towering thunderstorm. It’s hard to compete with that. If someone gave me the power to fly, I think that would be the first thing I’d do. Find me a storm and fly alongside it.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Those are both amazing. I captured my own clouds-from-airplane-window shot this week, but nothing as spectacular as yours.

    Thanks so much everyone! I got lucky sitting on that side of the plane and having a slightly cleaner window 🙂
