2008 West Texas Weather Rhapsody

I just completed my weather video for this year. Since it wasn't exactly a banner year, I was forced to add a few images from my archives to flesh the thing out.

Crank up the volume, I worked hard on the sound as well.

Keep in mind, this is not meant to be storm chaser video diary, but rather an emotional expression on how it feels to be an insignificant human humbled by the beauty of our immense Panhandle skies.

The music is from August Rush - it fit just perfectly what I had in mind, which was to capture the majesty and reverence i have for our amazing weather vistas.

Please leave a comment.

Most people hide from storms,
The watchers are a lucky few,
And it's true I do feel humbled,
By this display of what our God can do.

Steve, that is some great stuff there! I don't know how you did that, but it's very inspirational. Also, like you said, the music is PERFECT for that video. Again, very well done.

Thanks Jason. It was great meeting you and the rest of the Texas chasers the other day. I just wish I could have stayed longer.

We'll have to get together again and talk about still weather photography techniques.

It was great meeting you too. Ohh yea, I definitely want to get with you about photo techniques. You have LOTS of amazing shots and I want to talk still photography with you. Actually, I'm about to go out right now and do some night photography. Wish me luck!
