A Place To Relax In The Storm by kkart A Place To Relax In The Storm by kkart
A couple days ago here in Denver we had quite an amazing storm roll in. I stood in awe photographing it from Sloan's Lake as the clouds swirled and dance as they came in over the Rockies. I was absolutely amazed at what I was seeing and witnessing, if this had been Spring, I would have fully expected to hear tornado sirens as the convection was amazing. certainly something I would expect to see on the eastern plains and not in Denver in January. This lone park bench though caught my eye and I liked the message it sort of gave when I looked at it in my viewfinder, sort of a place to ponder, think, a calm in the storm if you will. I decided to capture it in HDR which I knew would bring out the atmosphere and the drama in that sky even more.

I really like this. The sky is threatening and yet the scenery is serene. Makes me terribly homesick actually, but that isn't unusual for me. Thank you for posting.

I'm amazed that you don't have any snow, Utah got slammed with snow for two weeks during December. Unfortunately for us, now we've got temperatures that go up to 25 degrees, and down to -15 degrees.

You know, I have been debating about that for awhile now and have been giving it very considerable thought. I am thinking maybe a YouTube video but I have no idea how to even record something like that.
