Pickles Posing by FramedByNature
Pickles Posing

Reverse Macro Technique

Ended up "adopting" a jumping spider (Phidippus Audax) while visiting Squaw Creek last month, and named him Pickles (since his initial makeshift habitat was a pickle jar). Have since created a decent little habitat for him and feed him regularly. Rather entertaining to catch a fly, put it in his container, and watch him hunt =D He has since molted and grown, and I plan on releasing him into the garden once it's a bit warmer and we have more flowers/plants around :)

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Boston in Black
Canon 5Dmk1
Canon 400mm f/5.6

Recently took a school trip to Boston to cover our men's hockey team in the Frozen Four tournament. Ended up losing to Providence, but still had a great time exploring the city with a couple friends and fellow photgorapher Eric Anderson. We decided to get a bird's eye perspective on the city from the top of the Prudential Tower. So much cityscape timelapse potential there, I don't know what I'd do with myself if I lived there! =D

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Canon 5D
Rokinon 14mm

This is the "end" of the supercell pictured previously. Sometimes watching them shrivel away can be just as beautiful as watching them tear up the earth. As the sun lit up the remains of the cell, you could really see the atmospheric wind shear at work, causing the updraft to spin even as it tilted over and died :nod:

Canon 5D
Rokinon 14mm

This was 14mm on a full-frame camera, so the striations at the top of the image were pretty much overhead in person. Getting really close and tight with this well-rounded supercell in South Dakota with Chris and Sarah. Had to dodge some hail shortly after this in order to get ahead of it :nod: Glad I snapped a frame while we were moving at this point, because it was one of the best looks we had at the storm during its stronger phase.

Canon 5D
Rokinon 14mm

This is one of those images that makes you do a double-take when you open it for editing. Didn't notice any funnels/tornadoes at the time while chasing this storm through South Dakota, but after applying a little clarity and contrast to the storm in post... I'm about 80% certain there's a broad funnel in there behind the rain curtains! Look for the darker strip of rain along the horizon, then look directly above that. Awfully suspicious feature in my opinion! :P Can't really count it as "seeing" a tornado, but still a cool find after the fact :) Hopefully more slow-moving photogenic storms like this to come in 2015! :la:

It starts tomorrow. And that makes me a little bummed :(
 
Oh well, it's my last semester. To say that I'm excited to blaze through this semester and throw myself out into the real world of getting a job/apartment/etc would be an understatement. I know it sounds a little silly, but I'm looking forward to having a more set schedule in life. There are lots of unknowns up in the air right now (Will I get my degree? Will that help me get a job? Where will I live?) and I can't wait to have them answered :nod:

That being said, it was a productive(ish) and much-needed winter break! Got a couple of chase accounts done over on the site (May 25th and 26th) www.framedbynature.net/account… among other things. Also starting to make some plans for a trip this year. Tough to get any dates solidified since I really don't know what my work situation will be come summer, but aiming for Great Sand Dunes in Colorado and climbing a 14'er or two while we're down there :la:

So, since Colorado and the mountains have been on the mind lately... how about an all-Colorado feature? :dance:
