Calm Before the Beast by FramedByNature Calm Before the Beast by FramedByNature
Canon Digital Rebel XSi
Tamron 10-24mm
HDR


Season represented: Summer
Another of the earlier shots from the world record hail-producing Vivian, SD supercell. At this point we could see the base, but there really wasn't a point in getting closer since it was racing towards us and we needed to keep our road options open. We were concerned that the dry air ahead of this storm would kill it, but that wasn't the case. On the far right of this image near the horizon, you can see the base of the storm and its young anvil in the upper right :)

Please tell me what you think! :boogie:

It's my dream to go to America at place like this. It looks so beautiful. Like from road movies! Amazing green all around you, blue sky, shining sun and holy peace! And these colours are just awesome. I must stare at this picture for so long cause it's simply beatiful! Well done, man!

Thank you very much! This is a common scene in the midwest- a long, rolling road with blue sky and puffy clouds :)

A very "American" shot with the distinctive yellow lines, rolling hills and road signs. :)
Love it, coupled with the bright sun coming through the clouds and the beautiful colours, has to be one of my favourites right now :heart:

Nice pic :D
To me these clouds doesen't look like storm clouds at all.
More like white fluffy nice weather clouds, exept for the big thing to the right.
If i would se these clouds for real i wouldn't wory at all that this will become such a big storm as you describe it as oO

Anyway, nice pic from you as always.
And i must say i like the way you describe all your pics ^^

Thanks! You'll see more of that big cloud to the right soon. I wish I would have taken more photos on that day, but what I got is fantastic. It was just such a photogenic storm. It's a shame it was chucking hail 10 miles in front of the updraft, making it difficult to take photos :XD:
