This was the awesome pix I took during monsoon season here in AZ. It is such a relaxing pic. I am in the process of getting it blown up for my new place. Here is another Monsoon 2010 Pix. This was on My B-day, July 28th, 2010. I took it on my iPhone on the top floor of the parking garage at my job. I love storms!
I took this photo from the front door of my home in Panama City Beach, Florida. If anyone knows what would cause a cloud formation like this, I would love to know, as the weather on this day was normal. Unfortunately, the pine tree that you can see in the right side of the photo was done in by the dreaded pine bark beetle and has since been removed.
I have a wonderful vista from my kitchen window and see some beautiful clouds. I live right by the beach on the West of England coast line and I'm sure that makes for some fabulous looking clouds as the winds come straight off the sea.
This one struck me as looking like an angel, what can you see?
Location: Weston-super-Mare, England.
We are located in a region known as the Palouse of Eastern Washington. The picture of this frightening storm was taken just outside of my home in Rosalia, WA on August 22, 2008, overlooking the wheat field bordered by HWY 195 to the east.
Late summer-early fall storms are pretty dangerous in our region since most storms only produce dry lightening. With an average annual precipitation of around 17 inches and low summer humidity it is not at all uncommon for these extremely dry grain fields to catch fire. My home only sits about 20 feet west of this particular field and we are only separated by a narrow dirt road.

Sometimes even an ugly, traffic filled ride home from work can be beautiful. This was taken while sitting in traffic right outside of Chicago, IL. There might not be any flowers or wild life, but the earth will still show her beauty.

As evening comes and the weight of the day's pressure subside, we always search our minds for some small moment that makes it all worth it. On the days where there isn't much to find, somehow nature takes over and shows us.
I was able to catch a snapshot of a passing thunderstorm from far away. Being that it is a my camera phone, it turned out wonderfully in my opinion. I must have thousands of cloud pictures, but this is my favorite!
I love watching the development of clouds. The weather offers an everchanging opportunity to take photos!
We were at Lake Erie and I was looking at the clouds and it was so pretty I decided to take a picture.
Photo of forming tornado in Western Oklahoma. This was taken just south of Cheyenne, Oklahoma.
Darkness means loneliness for many. They never knew that darkness has a lot of good in it. It will always remind us that there's always light after it and start another chapter of our lives.
While out on a brisk January morning spreading the word about "human trafficking" I could not resist the urge to photograph the sun above the steeples in the city. It was as if we were being rewarded.
This was a storm that was passing over us. Every time a storm comes our way, I am always out there with my camera!
This is a picture of one of the mountain tops covered by a cloud. We were traveling on our way to Virginia on April 23, 2011 and ran into a storm. At certain times, we were actually in the thunder clouds.
They told me the weather changes so fast in Montana, to be prepared for any kind - they did not however tell me to watch for the "eyes in the skies"!

I saw this amazing cloud from my kitchen window, it seemed to funnel upwards way beyond my view. It looked like a tornado in cloud form.
I looked up on the Internet for the proper name and I think it's a Rotor Cumulus Cloud or a Roll Cloud. I've never seen one like it before in my life.
This is incredible!
That is so cool! I've never seen anything like it! (10/01/2010)
What a neat photo! It looks like it could be from right out of the Wizard of Oz movie! (10/03/2010)
Wow, that is amazing! I've never seen such a thing! (10/05/2010)
Funnel Cloud taken just seconds before the tornado touched down in Gallatin TN, April 7, 2006.
I can't even imagine how scary that must have been. May God bless each of you who went through that storm. (04/25/2006)

Wow, what an amazing picture. But I don't think I would have stood there long enough to take that picture, I would have been taking cover. (04/25/2006)
My heart goes out to you, I would have been terrified. Each scary storm or when Tornado sirens goes off, I think " Why did I leave San Diego, CA for Missouri?" People say oh but you had earthquakes but with earthquakes you did not have
warnings. I guess it comes down to what you are.
