Stormy weather ahead

A couple of days ago we had some fairly severe weather develop across Arizona. Storms dumping a lot of rain and producing 60+mph winds. The cell on the left of this grouping was actually severe warned a bit after this. Damaging winds, tons of rain…good stuff.

I shot this in the middle of Gilbert Road just south of Hunt Highway looking north. They are actually way across town on the very far side of Phoenix, but it’s amazing how clear the skies were that you could actually see the rain falling.

Again…my love affair of roads continues.

This is a hybrid exposure blend, plus a little Topaz Adjust on the road and Nik Silver Efex for the black and white processing.

    Great shot, Mike! I really love that you can see the two absolute downpours on the right and left with a few more isolated bits of rain in the middle. The black and white looks great here. Oh, and the road and power lines leading the eye to the storm are just gravy 🙂

    Wonderful image. The road leads my eye directly to that tremendous storm cloud. The power lines on the left and homes in the background/horizon all combine to make this a great shot. You’ve got excellent vision.
