Canon Digital Rebel XSi Tamron 10-24mm HDR panorama
First real good shot from May 10th's storm chasing. We payed our dues the night before, when our car ran out of gas 5 miles north of Salina, KS (never trust a GPS... it will lead you to gas stations that are closed or out of commission). Luckily, Chris called his insurance company and in about an hour, we were rolling again after a towing service gave us 2 gallons of gas. $6 is all it cost, thank goodness for roadside assistance! Anyway, we figured the trouble the night before meant that we wouldn't have any trouble on the day of the chase. This was the first storm we got under. Some really incredible structure.
We're having a pretty shitty spring. It had just stopped raining before I took this photo. Slowly, but inevitably, the weather is improving.
The interesting thing here is that the sun is still pretty high above the horizon - this is around 25 minutes before sunset.

That morning in december I woke up with the most beautiful scenery around me. I made some pictures along the canal. There was no snow, but it had been freezing so hard that every drop of moisture was frozen on every surface.
I submit this picture to 's contest 'Linking The Seasons' so I have to link this picture to an opposite season: [link] a picture of a beautiful summermorning landscape made by one of my dA-favourites *jchanders
I've changed the category of this picture in order to submit it as an entry for Nature's Reflection Contest (more info: [link] )
This is my interpretation of the death plane colossus. I've added as much movement and menace as possible and in the design tried to encapsulate all the elements I think should be inherent in death personified. The dark menace lunges forward clawing at your very soul, taking on many forms, cracking, shifting shape, the threat of death is closer than your breath. The plane of death has been given a terrifying form.
