Weather Freak by KSPhotographic Weather Freak by KSPhotographic
Two storm systems collided over the Edmonton International Airport. Funnel Clouds, lightning hitting the tarmac etc. Needless to say the airport was all but shut down in an instant.

Suggester said; "I've watched this deviant grow for 2 years, and the moment I saw this in my deviant watch I ran straight to the appropriate gallery moderator and suggested it.

:iconmoonlightsend:
What can I say, I love storms like this. :)
And especially I love it when someone manage to catch it all as a photo!
I'm stunned over the composition, and how it almost look like a painting!:wow:
I'm rather speechless about it, it's so breathtaking beautiful.:heart: One can almost feel the storms power coming out from the photo. Storms like this a deadly beautiful, and so much more fascinating. :)
There are few of us that manage to capture it's beauty, but you managed to do so, and I'm very glad you did, because it's epic, lethal, and so beautiful.
Bravo.:clap:
What do you think?

:iconsicmentale:
This is an amazing picture revealing the particularly sharp structure of this storm and the viewer as a very clear view of the phenomenon. I like the green hue, most often the signature of hail within the storm. It is not too greenish, so the picture doesn't look fake.

I would have like to see a bit more of the storm structure. The portrait-size picture hides some very interesting details at the left of the structure. Maybe shooting in landscape would have revealed such details. However, I understand such framing would have not shown the upper parts of the structure, especially well lightened.

It is indeed a very beautiful picture.
What do you think?

I live in Edmonton, Alberta and saw mother nature at first hand when she decided to point her finger at Edmonton in 1987. This beautiful shot just makes me admire the awesome power she can deal with her devastating hand and to respect nature. Keep up the great work.

Thank you. :)
I missed the one in 87, I was off in Ontario visiting family. We had no clue about it when my mother called and said "we're okay, everyone is fine" lol

Been waiting for an opportunity ever since lol (not that I would ever wish one on anyone)
