The Awe of the Storm

October 01, 2017  •  30 Comments

In deference to the mighty punch of this season's Atlantic hurricanes, I'm presenting a selection from my portfolio of storm photos.  Mind you, these do not include any photos from the 2017 Hurricane Season.  As Irma approached Florida, my focus and energy were on storm preparation and safeguarding my family. (Plus, I'm not a photojournalist.) We were fortunate to have this massive and destructive storm lose much of its strength before it reached our area and we came through it just fine.  But I've included a few sobering shots (like above) that I made years ago after Hurricane Ivan so this post doesn't entirely gloss over the wrathful side with what otherwise might be a photo collection of beauty in nature's fury.

My heart goes out to all who suffered from the mighty storms this fall, especially to those islanders in the Caribbean hammered repeatedly. May the rest of the season be calmer, and the storms to be remain asea.  Thanks for visiting my blog. As always, I really appreciate your comments here, and encourage you to share this link with friends and family.

These are amazing, David. I started to remember the titles of those most striking to me-- like night rage, and bay storm-- but there were more and more moving images, too many to name. Many thanks!

You really captured our Florida clouds that I enjoy so much. With our full moon peeking today and the winds so strong, lately, I've had some great experiences cloud watching in the evening. Thanks for getting out and about and sharing your experiences.
