In a Matter Of Minutes it Changes

I woke up at 04:15 to find a blizzard going on! All I say were stars five hours before, the radar showed the storm going north of us but by the time I got up, it had slipped south. There was two inches on the ground when I drove down to meet the boys for our morning shoot but half way there, the lighting started. That means the winds are blowing dangerously and we’re not going shooting!

We headed out at 1PM but the wind was still blowing. Remember that post a couple of days ago, the one with the video with all the wind? Well we ended up there for a little while and the wind was still blowing. These photos were all taken within a matter of minutes of each other. If I had had the time, it would have been a killer place to do a time lapse because the clouds were racing by.

The cool thing was, if you didn’t like the clouds or their shadows (which is why I change the image a little each time I clicked), all you had to do is wait a few moments. The bottom one is my favorite of the three because of the big puffy on the left, it’s a great anchor for everything else.
