Amazing Storm Photography

A windstorm blew through Evanston, Illinois near Lake Michigan and I was there with a camera.  If I had a brain, I would have taken shelter.  This storm whipped up to gale force in minutes and the sky was constantly shifting.  Unfortunately, instead of a brain, I had my HBBF’s high end DSLR camera.  I was shooting stills and video for the Women to Go activism event on July 1, 2012 so it was a rare time that I had borrowed his camera.  I would say these shots were taken in a fifteen to twenty minute span.  The clouds look like they are trying to make fractals.  This was worth the risk, right?

    Maximum respect for clouds! What is the risk in being awesome with a cloud?

      My risk was staring at the sky trying to frame shots while patio furniture from the restaurants on the street was being blown away in 45 – 60 mph winds. I would have quit it with rain or lightening and gone indoors. The wind also blasted small rocks and debris that hit pretty painfully. I’m lucky I didn’t break my glasses. 6_9 It was tornado weather. People often do not believe tornadoes hit Chicago; they do and are mapped by the National Weather Service and NOAA.
