Inverted Soufflés

art is everywhere                                                   

While on stormchasing expeditions in the Tornado Alley in the USA, I have encountered many photogenic supercell storms. This photograph was taken while we were approaching the storm near Julesburg, Colorado, on May 28, 2013. The storm was tornado-warned for more than one hour, but stayed an LP [low precipitation] storm through all its cycles and never produced a tornado, just occasional brief funnels, large hail, and some rain.” –Marko Korošec Marko Korošec / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest / Via

Cuzzin ricky links us to Photos That Won Awards In 2014.  They are taken by amateurs.  The cloud formation above is technically called "Inverted Soufflé"  and is caused when thermal wind clouds are jiggled suddenly by Arctic winds blowing in from a cold place.  I am of course also amateurish.  My second favorite is “First Time,” a rare and touching picture of an actual virgin on her wedding day.  And the groom's "do" is priceless. Rehearsal Party is I think a cruel farce, and wasn't included.

Technically called "Inverted Soufflé" but I'd name it "the Day Obama was elected President."

Nature is trying to kill you 24/7.
It's not toying with you.
It just flat doesn't care.
Nature is frikkin' awesome.
