Betty LaRue Posted June 7, 2014 Share Posted June 7, 2014 When the weather turns severe, how many of you rush out to capture it? I can see doing snow, ice, flooding, but here in Oklahoma, our storms are something else. I so want to get shots of some of our menacing wall clouds, the kind tornadoes drop out of, but it seems most of the time when they reach my area, it is dark. Plus you can't get good ones in the city, you need to get into the countryside with a wide angle to capture the immensity against farm fields, and not be blocked by trees and houses. I've thought about driving west to meet storms, but then one can get caught in hail anywhere from ping pong ball to baseball size. Nebraska had a big one the other day. A young businesswoman got caught in her car. She curled in a ball, put her briefcase over her head while all the windows were knocked out. I'll bet she had to shake out her britches after that. I am fascinated by storm cloud images. I want some. I'm just not willing to lose my car to get them. Speaking of storms, tonight and the next few days will be dicey here. Like last night, it'll probably roll in 3 a.m. or after. Betty Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
