5/31/2002: Colorful storm

It looks absolutely surreal. Like a dream. Or a scene from a movie. The colors of the crops, the gold in the background... the tree sitting off to the right to lend an object to the picture. Just a great shot.

Texas has some great sunsets. Red Ones. Blue Ones and Green Ones. The big storms coming down the great plains make for some awesome thunder and lightning shows. And that's enough playing with the editor for now.

You know, I really don't appreciate photographers stealing from painters.

I'm really curious as to what sort of photo gear the photographer used. Especially whether or not he used any filters to get this amazing shot.

We've been very lucky. The fiercest storms tracked South of us and there was a tornado reported just North and West of us yesterday. Bear Creek got something like three inches of rain in an hour a few days ago. But you know the deal (insert Patton line here).

I know I'm only echoing the comments made by others already here, but that's simply amazing. Surreal and intruigingly beautiful.

I've lived in Texas most of my pitiful life, and I've seen a lot of thunderstorms quite similar to this. I can drive about 30 miles out of Houston and see a landscape like this.

The photographer has a couple of audio tracks with the photo on MSNBC, in which he explains how the color of the storm caught his eye, on his way to photograph a little league baseball game. He doesn't seem to admit to any colorization of the image by filtering, much less photoshop.

Found this series of shots of a storm passing through in Sydney Australia. Not extremely dramatic but nice to watch.
