The Sky Tsunami by FramedByNature The Sky Tsunami by FramedByNature
June 19th, 2011

I don't even know how this type of storm structure is possible on our planet, but I'm certainly glad it is. As we watched a massive shelf cloud race towards a mesocyclone at dusk, we figured the show would soon be over and they would destroy each other. Wrong. Somehow, they joined to create this incredible nighttime mesocyclone. Such a smoothly sculpted massive updraft, not like anything I've ever seen before (nor do I expect to see anything like it again lol). :o

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Hello! This is a GORGEOUS shot! And I wanted to ask your permissions to use it as a reference of a picture I need to draw in my Digital Drawing class. Of course I will share the finished product with you as a hard copy to keep for whatever albums you may want to check it into and I will post it on Deviant Art with credits back to you image. If you say no, I completely understand and thank you for sharing such a BEAUTIFUL once in a life time opportunity with all of us on Deviant Art! This is absolutely gorgeous and what talent you have as a photographer!

If I might add, I will also be needing to make a photo manipulation with the image before going straight into drawing, however, it iwll be just a crude throw together for my reference to the original image. It will not be posted anywhere, but if you wish to see it I will definitely show it to you.

Thank you again!

Best regards,

Danielle

There are two things I love about clouds that do this: first off, it give you a sense of atmospheric depth, that you just don't get, when clouds are 'normal' and fluffilly scattered about, and then, also, the natural wind-sculpting making the clouds looks so INCREDIBLY COMFY AND SOFT.

I've been sat here staring at this and I really just don't know what to say. I just can't believe you caught something this astonishing. The lighting just completes it.
Perfect is really the only word to describe this, I suppose.

Ok, how do you get clear, whole-storm-type shots like this? How far are you from the storm?

I live in the prairies, with loooooots of clear sky, but storms always seem to be hazy, or the clouds that are near me makes getting a clear image impractical at best, impossible at worst. Am I missing some trick? Or is this just a matter of loooooots of patience and practice?

Pardon my questioning. Curious minds want to know. ^^;

By the way, has anyone got a gif of this on radar? How it formed, and how it looked during this time... Something...that doesn't require something like GR2Analyst to see. XD Because I don't have that. :'<
