A time of turbulence

I remember a long time ago, back in college, I was on a road trip with a group of friends. We were headed back home and it was fairly late at night. Everyone on the bus was drinking partying and having a good time, but me? I was sittting, staring out into the darkness like a zombie. One of my friends came up to me and asked if I was o.k. It startled me and I turned around and said, "huh?" She said, "Are you all right?". I was like, "Yeaaahhh??!?". She asked if I was going to be sick or something and then I laughed and said, "No, I was looking at the night studying how the light was bouncing off of things. It facinates me."

At that point my friend got up and said I was weird and walked away.

What's this have to do with anything you ask? Well, the long-short of it is that I'm weird. I'm always looking at things out the window, facinated about colors, composition or how light plays off objects. I normally take my camera with me or have it sitting on my desk in case I see something I like.

This morning when I started working, it was raining, we had hail, and for a few moments I thought armageddon was upon us. But I love this, not the stormy part, but the calm after the storm. That's when some truly magical things can appearin the sky or can happen with the light. And today was one of those days. I saw something that I that was pretty cool and who knows, maybe you do to.

A time of turbulence

Not sure if you can tell at this scale, but the clouds looked like a turbulent sea of waves. I titled the picture "A time of turbulence".

I take a lot of pictures off of my roof. Here are some of the other shots taken over the past few years. It's amazing how the same view can look so different all the time.
