Collide II by kylewright Collide II by kylewright
180 degree, north to south panoramic photo of the base of a supercell thunderstorm in western Oklahoma. In this photo, you can see more of the counter clockwise 'hook echo' or circulation of a wall cloud. The distinct lowering can be seen peaking out from behind the column of rain. I am really pleased with how these shots turned out and the color really is amazing. On one side there are the warm highlights from the sunset and on the other side are the cool colors cast in the shadow of the strengthening storm. There is probably some science associated with this, but my parents and their parents before them have always said, "that if the clouds appear greenish in tint, there is hail on its way!" And let me tell you that this is definitely true with this storm! You can see some of the aqua green in some of the clouds on the left half of the picture.

Here are other pictures of the same storm: [link] & [link]

I've driven in a storm like that before...or at least ahead of it, anyway. Behind me was an ominous, yellow wall cloud, while in front of me were clear, calm, cyan-blue skies. Every time I looked in my rear-view mirror, I felt like the apocalypse was chasing me.
