Hi Ralph, great shot, we were in some of those storms on Saturday. Greetings, Greg.
Yes those storms were quite impressive.
WOW what a view! L1 and greetings , Ingrid
It's good to hear from you again. Thanks!
I love this sky. The texture, and the layers of backlighting, just perfect.
Thanks!! I knew I had a good pic as soon as I climbed up on the tracks and saw the texture and details from nearground to far distance.
Beautiful landscape Ralph !!! LK
Looks like trouble ahead Ralph?
Marvelous image & amazing atmosphere. Greetings.
Thank you for examining my photographs and your encouraging comments.
Reminds me of the Great Tri-State Tornado of Wednesday, March 18, 1925, the most destructive tornadic system in U.S. history killing almost 700 people - many of whom were farmers known to be tornado savvy. The twister(s) hid within a black cloud of debris hiding its shape and and obscuring the fact that it was a tornado. It traveled parallel to railroad tracks, and the thundering noise was thought to be an approaching train until the sound became deafening and too late for anyone to react. Whole towns were scraped from the face of the Earth. This Wednesday will be the exact 90th anniversary (date & day of the week) of this terrible event. An ominous yet powerful image as well as reminder given the railroad tracks coming right at the viewer. This may have been the same view that the victims had as death approached. Great capture. Like & Fave! -JAK
It is interesting to learn this image might be similar to that great tornado of almost exactly 90 years ago. A few tornados do sweep through this part of Idaho where I took the photo. They rarely exceed F1, however.
