Great shot, Hank.

Very moody! Great work! I like pictures like that very much. This new collection from your travels looks like something to look forward to for my next midnight shift where I can find some quiet moments to enjoy good phtography. I will be back!

Greetings and thanks Dann and Lukas. It's an unusual experience for an easterner like me to be standing that close to a storm cloud, out in the open, and not be soaking wet. I find the scale of the southwest totally inspiring; and do I ever understand the press of time during the day, so thanks expecially for taking the time to write.

I think you're right, Hank. With lower cloudbases and so many trees, I suppose it's a lot harder to really see the storms in the majestic form they present over the deserts. The lightning is especially amazing if you catch it right.

I looked at this before but didn't comment. I was remiss: it's a beautiful, power shot! Marilyn

Thank you Marilyn. I had a plastic bag in my back pocket (for the camera) just in case I got caught in the rain. My wife stayed in the car, not wanting to risk a soaking. I never got wet, and I'm really glad I risked it.

When i look at your pictures, i dont now what to say. They are all so beautiful ! Jacques

Hank Waxman on November 5, 2007

That, my friend Jacques, is quite a lot to say. Thank you, most sincerely.

My best.

Hi Arthur, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, is far less visited which makes it a more unique experience, and the views are still spectacular. Thanks for your comments.

Wonderful! A really great picture you did. Greetings from Graz, Hans

Hank Waxman on January 9, 2011

Thank you Hans, for you compliment, I was very lucky to capture the storm rolling in.
