Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Weather III: Stormy Weather"

:It's time for pretty pictures of ugly weather. No sunshine here -- show us ominous clouds rolling in, heavy rainstorms, lightning, heavy snows, tornadoes, hurricanes, hailstorms, and sheets of ice. The weather event should be the main focus of the picture.

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.

***For this theme only, the following rules do not count!***
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.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

This is a digitized slide I originally took in 1971 of a storm approaching Lawton, OK from the top of Mt Scott. The lights are Lawton and Fort Sill.

Another 1971 picture of lightning from the top of Mt Scott. This was a different night and looking in a different direction at a pretty intense storm.

PS for those interested, the slides were digitized on a lightbox with a macro lens on a tripod-mounted DSLR. Also done a long time ago, could probably do a little better now.

The heavy snow was too much for a branch on my oak tree.

Storm's Up

A few days prior, a nasty storm battered the Bearing Sea between Kamchatka and the Aleutians. The morning before this shot, waves generated by that storm reached Kauai's North Shore. By this afternoon, they had reached full force. While nearly every beach facing the swell was closed due to dangerous shorebreak (10-15 foot waves smashing into the sand), a few folks braved the open ocean breaks where they were treated with 20-35 foot faces in a normally calm harbor.

I call this "Lightning Strike Near Green River." It's currently on display at the Wyoming State Museum as part of the Governor's Capitol Art Exhibition.
