Outflow 79-82 — A panoramic view of cloud structures shaped by the outflow from an approaching thunderstorm. Assembled from multiple iPhone images.
Due to poor timing I missed shooting a spectacular shelf cloud that passed over our area yesterday; it was an epic view, maybe not once in a lifetime but certainly an uncommon sight in this region. I felt terrible, having seen the shelf cloud in all its glory but missing the opportunity to photograph it. Today’s weather, though not as amazing, gave me another chance at impressive cloud structure and I’m feeling much better for it!
As the outflow boundary approached, a segment built up its form, intensifying into a formidable shape. Panorama assembled from multiple iPhone images.
Gathering Storm: The outflow boundary arrives, nearly overhead now, in all its bluster and drama. Rain arrived next. A single image made with a Canon 6D.
A spot of sun appeared on the green field just before the storm swept in and blotted it out.
