First time for everything ...

I went for a nice walk with Caysi (my grand daughter) after the rain tonight. She's eight (going on nine) and is very smart, loving, outgoing and inquisitive.

She wants to be a storm chaser some day like her grand dad, We walked up the road and we talked about the clouds. I pointed out some cloud structure and tried to describe what was going on in the atmosphere. I talked about updrafts and downdrafts and she seemed to understand.

Topping the hill we saw the beautiful departing storm at sunset and she wanted to take a photo of it, so I helped her set up the camera on a tripod and this was the result.

Not bad for a eight year old! Heck, not bad for anyone of any age! I think she has a fine future ahead of her.

Please leave a comment of encouragement.

Good shot Caysi! That is a very good photo of a thunderstorm at sunset. You are going to be good at taking photos of storms. Great job!

I was on a blogsite called tornadical action and ran across a panhandleskies click URL which brought me to your site. This picture Caysi took is great. Its good she is learning the effectiveness of a tripod, and you are teaching her well. I believe she'll be a great stormchaser and photographer. Keep at it Caysi!!!
