Thunderstorm by the City

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass…
It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.

Thunderstorm, Sunset & a Truck

Last week, as I was driving back from Atlanta to Chicago, I got to encounter a thunderstorm. Driving along the highway, the mobile was going abuzz with warnings. When I pulled over to check the same, it was the weather warnings suggesting to take cover. Luckily there was a rest stop near by to take shelter. In a few minutes, the showers stopped, allowing to capture this. The setting sun added drama to the scene. 

Maybe someday, will make time to plan and chase some storms. Witnessing the power is one, in addition, the light during extreme weather is just magical.

Storm in the Skies

After driving for 14 hours straight, I thought, all I would want was to get some break and sleep. But I was wrong ! As we reached the Smoky Mountain National Park and set the tent well into the darkness, the conditions were just ripe to explore some stars and was too tempting to miss ! The moon was not up, it was one of the darkest skies that I had seen in a while. It took a while to drive around and identify a spot, safe enough to shoot shoot the stars with some interesting foreground. Being new to the place, the mystery of the night and the sound of the rushing stream near by, added to the experience. The clouds were moving pretty fast, and helped set the mood of this shot to a great extent.

As for the processing of this shot : it was aided by the nifty Photoshop script(s) – Creative Trails UI & Creative Effects UI. I wrote a whole article about these scripts over the weekend. You can download the scripts here (for free, of course !) . If you are into photography do take some time to check it out.

Let yourself be …

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray – Rumi

Sunset over the ocean

There’s almost nothing more relaxing than the sound of the ocean as the sun sets over the water.

Twin trees @ the Tetons

The Grand Teton National Park – as the name suggest is awesomely grand ! The jagged, craggy peaks of the Tetons are quiet magnificent  by themselves. Really enjoyed this place as we drove thru for our Yellowstone visit. Made a note to myself that one day would need to get back to Teton for, may be a week just to get soaked in her beauty.

As much as I would like to have been there for the early morning golden light, that afternoon did not disappoint either. The quick storm, that was fast approaching, created the dynamic lighting for the below shot. Really loved the way the sun lit up the foreground , while the storm was brewing back at the mountains. Hope u like the same as much as I do !
