Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Weather 2: Weather or Not"

: Photograph terrestrial based weather phenomena: sunshine, clouds, rain, snow, fog, wind, lightning, tornadoes, hurricanes, sleet, hail, ice, mudslides, flooding and rainbows. For photos in which the main subject isn't the weather itself but rather evidence of weather, the subject should be directly affected or interacting with the weather. Difficulty: Each entry must have a different kind of weather.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

An E-Z Up Tumbleweed from Wakarusa 2013 (Weather type: WIND, and lots of it)

Tornadic storms hit the campground overnight and blew all the E-Z Ups around until they gathered in groups like tumbleweeds.
The next day, people started hanging random objects on them and they became "art installations."

I had to look it up to learn that this rainbow-tipped cloud formation is called a "circumhorizontal arc."

"Biblical Flood"

A week after last months flooding, just up the road from me in Loveland, CO.  Still trying to figure out what model that is, I think it's a Chrysler Air Stream, but does anyone know for sure?  The debris makes me believe it was completely under water at one point.

"High Park Homestead"

One of the few survivors of the High Park Fire, June-July 2012, in the Buckhorn Canyon west of Fort Collins.  The area was devastated, but this picture just goes to show that something beautiful can come out of something destructive.  Touring the area was surreal, I've spent a lot of time in that wilderness area, and it looked post-apocolyptic that summer.

"My favorite campsite in the whole world"

It's free and gives you one of the best views of the most photographed area in the country.  That night we got a couple inches of rain, and the fog lifting off the valley and partially obscuring the snowy Tetons made it look like something out of Tolkien.

No, they didn't cancel school or shut down the city. It's relatively normal around here.
