Thank you tigerwings1st. These clouds grew from nothing at near ground level to immense size in a short time. While they appeared very near they were miles east later producing softball size hail.

Very well done. When I first saw this, I thought it was taken from an aircraft but then I saw the trees at the bottom.

That looks like a nasty storm. I sure wouldn't want to hang around there very long!

Thanks Cal. A major mistake realized too late was not using RAW, which I've never done, or at least maximum jpeg. Everything that day 2059x1402 as my hardrive was getting pretty full. Imagine thats why the left side is so grainy.

Appreciate your view and comment, buddhasghost. Whish you could havebeen there.

44 photos were taken. 8 or 9 are at tazzie.zoto.com . they are all quite different. if you go there they can be blown up. some awesome, one is a bit scary.

Keep in mind the sky was blue, the trees green. dynamic range limitations are such a drag.

This is the way it began

Tazzie,

Lovely interpretation of the clouds. I actually find your second shot more attractive than the first. But then again, this shows how personal the art is.

The relatively restricted dynamic range of digital sensors isa bummer. Many a shot has being relegated to the also rans because of blown highlights.

Aloha

Aloha, selvin. Everyone whose seen all the photos has chosen a different one,
so I'm not atall suprised at your choice. My daughter can't get past Tullio's bubble.
I can't either. Love that bubble.
Thanks for commenting.

Very impressive, Tazzie. I like both pictures. The cloud formation is awesome (although it appears that you sharpened it quite a bit to obtain the strong silhouette). I like #2 as far as color contrast goes but #1 is more powerful due to its size. Great job!!!

Hi Tullio, nice to be able to see your photos and meet you so to speak. Your Gold #1 takes me back to a similar place from long ago.

I type with two fingers and can't get past Picasa. One sharpen isn't enough and two is too much.

I'm glad to have you comment and always feel free to say what I need to hear.
