Stormchasing: Nebraska Roll Cloud

Up until now, none of the photos I’ve posted from my Nebraska stormchasing trip have been in HDR, but I thought I’d try a few and see what happened. I did three-exposures for every shot I took while out there, and it was impossible to take much more than that without an automatic method. The clouds moved so amazingly fast, doing 7-9 exposures wouldn’t work.

I am loving the way a few of them turned out, so I will be posting a couple here and there. This first one is of a giant roll cloud that came racing across the sky to the right edge of this frame. This cloud was moving so incredibly fast, I stood there with my jaw hanging open. The clouds were rushing up and building in front of the thing like nothing I’ve ever seen before.

    Beautiful shot! We live in the Nebraska sandhills, and I can picture capturing a storm rolling in. Awesome photo.

    Oh and I just noticed you’re in Arizona! I’m going to be moving there at the end of the year – sadly our time in Hawaii is coming to a close but I’m excited about a completely new change in scenery 🙂

    Yeah, this was just a trip to Nebraska, I’m a native resident of Arizona 🙂

    That’s a big change from Hawaii to AZ, where exactly are you moving to?

    My husband is in the military and we’re getting stationed at a base in Sierra Vista – I hear it’s beautiful around there!

    Michelle, that is way in the SE portion of the state…is he going to help with any of the border stuff, or is this just a normal move for a person in the military?

    Hope you enjoy it down there, I think there is some interesting stuff down there, but I’ve never explored that area before!
