I like the mountains in the background.  That very faint line of mountains right up against the sky.  You can walk from where this shot was taken to those mountains and not cross a road.  That's why I miss Montana.

In the late afternoon of June 17, 2010 I was getting dinner ready, had the TV off and was jamming to some tunes. Dinner was leftover grilled hamburgers and I was chopping up some onion to saute' and have on them. I was going about chopping the onion up when I stopped...and noticed the light coming inside the house turning a strange gold sepia color?! I quickly stopped, washed off my hands and went to the east window and looked out at a surreal world bathed in this light with some nasty looking clouds about. I then went down and looked out the west window and looked up to see this huge formation of Mammatus clouds. I quickly grabbed my camera and went out into the driveway and snapped a few shots of this cloud formation.

After I took a few pictures, I lowered my camera and just looked at them in both amazement and a growing dread that something bad was happening or was going to happen. Knowing that Mammatus clouds are indicative of severe weather, I knew I better get inside and see what kind of situation we were in. As soon as the door was closing behind me the severe weather sirens started going off escalating that bad feeling I had. I scrambled for the remote, turned on the TV and watched report after report coming in all our local channels of Tornado's all around us touching down and in the entire state of Minnesota!

I was living in Burnsville at the time which was put under a severe thunderstorm warning. When all was said and done Burnsville got luck....very lucky with just some heavy rain and wind, but other area's were not so lucky. 48 Tornadoes total were reported ranging from EF0 to 3 confirmed EF4's on that fateful day breaking all records and sadly three lives were also lost that day.

Information was gathered from:

Photographers Note: This photo was not enhanced in any way. I only ran it through Photoshop to sharpen it as I do with all of my digital photo's. The scene you see is exactly how it looked that day that my camera captured it. DDL

IR of Glacier National Park in Montana, USA. I didn't swap channels, just fiddled with colors balance, channels (a bit), and curves. It looked terrible until I thought to put the black frame on it, but now I'm fairly happy with it. This one has given me fits, it looks like it has good potential off camera, but I've had a bear of a time getting an image I like out of it.

These were all over the park. Couldn't resist taking their photo.

There has been some extreme weather here that not only left snow, but also left ice everywhere.  It's funny to have snow that creates a breaking noise first, and then the tradition crunch of snow.  The snow here is even covered in ice as well as everything, and I mean everything outdoors has ice on it!  Thankfully none of the trees here has lost major branches, but across the street they have lost some major branches that snapped so hard they flew off into the road 20 feet.

Did a "Senior Photo" type shoot for a friend's sister. Girl was a bad-ass, this is Lake Tahoe in January, that water is about 35 degrees and the air wasn't much warmer. Paid off with some pretty epic pictures though.
