Cloud Cities

9/27/2015 – Cloud Cities: – Large thunderstorms roam across the hot and humid Florida Everglades, their beauty disguising the destructive force within its clouds, and the havoc that can at times unleash upon the earth beneath it. Their structure clearly visible here, Inflows, outflows and even rain shafts are visible. If you look closely at the cloud tops you can clearly see the strong, billowing, vertical motion of the updraft causing the clouds to rapidly build skyward. This flight (Southwest Airlines 1674 to FLL) flew down Florida's west coast to Naples, then crossing the Everglades on approach to Fort Lauderdale. This was shot at about 25k feet while turning to miss storms. We did fly through the edge of one, being diverted far out over the Atlantic Ocean, then back again to land. Shot with Hyperlapse @12X speed. The full video is 4:16. This is the first one minute of it.

Still Waters At Sunset

View this post on Instagram

12/25/16 – Still Waters – Lake Drummond / Great Dismal Swamp, Virginia: A lone Bald Cypress stands 75 feet offshore catching the very last rays of the days sun. The cobalt blue sky fades to deep orange, pinks and reds near the earth as the sun is nearly below the far opposite horizon at sunset. The few clouds that remain over the lake turn iridescent pinks and oranges. Below, the almost glasslike surface of the water belies the stiff 15-20MPH winds coming off the lake, while creating near mirror like reflections. It is about as quite here as anywhere on earth. The only sounds are occasional sounds of various birds that call this lake and this enormous great swamp home. #lakedrummond #greatdismalswamp #loveva #virginiacities #virginiaisbeautiful #nature #virginiastate_photos #vawildlife #visitvabeach
