From the road
As you may know, I drive truck for a living. It’s the most boring job that I’ve ever had, the one redeeming quality besides the fact that I get a paycheck is that at least I’m not stuck inside all the time the way that I was in any other line of work that I’ve done.
I’ve seen quite a few spectacular sunsets while driving, and some impressive storms. For a while, I carried my Canon Powershot compact digital camera along with me, hoping for some good photos. I’ve never gotten any photos of the sunsets, but I do have a few cloud photos that I’ve been able to get, like this thunderstorm building up.
This storm is just beginning to form.
The storm cloud is still in the building stage and hasn’t become organized yet.
And continues to build.
There are often other clouds associated with a cumulonimbus cloud that have names, but darned if I can remember them, or find a website that details all the parts of a thunderstorm now that I want to find one. But you can see a “ring” forming around the thunderstorm at the mid-level of the cumulonimbus cloud.
Until it builds to a full-blown thunderstorm.
A close up of the anvil.
It may continue to grow.
But then after the storm, a ray of hope.
Here are a few other storm clouds that I’ve shot while working.
When I get really lucky, I see a rainbow.
I know that these photos aren’t great, but I couldn’t bring myself to delete them despite the poor quality, and the distractions in them.
One of these days I’ll get some good shots of storms using my good camera, but until then, these will have to do.
That’s it for this one, thanks for stopping by!
