Storm Photos: Part 1

What a week of weather. I don’t know if anyone else can understand how an event like we had can be as exciting as it was to me. The low pressure system that brought all the rain, wind, tornadoes and snow, was record-breaking.

The aftermath of that storm demanded that I document it. Granted, I didn’t get to see everything I wanted, but that’s usually the case when it comes to my excursions. I head out with one idea in mind, but end up somewhere else entirely.

I took Friday off from work just to drive around. The photos below were all taken on Friday, the very LAST photo being my absolute favorite shot of the day.

Also, you’ll notice these have a new watermark on them, something I’m going to start using now to protect them from being stolen illegally. I usually don’t mind them being downloaded as wallpaper for your computer, but I would like to sell some prints and if I make them readily available without the watermark, then I wont sell anything.

Hope you enjoy these! They are all HDR.

The above is the Superstition Mountains on Friday morning. The clouds were hugging the tops of the cliffs and made for some spectacular views.

Tempe Town Lake lowered it’s inflatable dam to let the Salt River flow once more.

This is a wash on the Indian reservation south of my house.

And my favorite…I called it “Shrouded in Clouds.” This was the sight of the day…if nothing else had turned out, this would have been just fine. I will be using this road again this summer during monsoon season.

If you are interested in a print, just drop me an email!

    It was Lost Dutchman road…I actually drove on it FROM the mountain, stopped to shoot something else, and then turned around to see this view. I was amazed.

    My fiance says the last picture looks like Jerry Bruckheimers production logo video thingie (lol, I’m not the movie buff, he is). Amazing pics…that should be in on a wall somewhere!
