Arrival of the Storm by papatheo Arrival of the Storm by papatheo
It was a morning of viewing several dramatic sequences and we had fun chasing the clouds around Door Peninsula. This was our final photography stop of our trip since we finally caught up with the storm and it decided to follow us home.

Being on the beach is definitely interesting when a storm is present. The appearance of the dark, angry clouds definitely causes considerable changes to take place on the beach. The waves pick up, vegetation sway in the strong winds, and the scene becomes a little darker. Here in this shot, there is a good amount of dimness to the seascape, even if the clouds are a bit bright.

This is definitely a heck of a storm. The billowing clouds have already taken over with some angry-looking clouds releasing some curtains of rain in the distance. This is definitely exciting to watch! Hey, this totally reminds me of the monsoon seasons here in Arizona. I'd be looking at the distant rains from the cave at Usery Pass, and it is always so awesome to gaze at, even from across the wide valley!

Surprisingly, the lake remains calm with its usual waves rolling in. Because of the brightness of the clouds, the surface of the water is quite shimmery. The serenity of the lake truly leaves me with a very serene feeling.

While the massive clouds and the lake are beautiful to watch, there is hardly any beach in the shot. It would be interesting to see what the beach is like during a storm. Taking backward steps (from the position where the photo was taken) would help include an ample amount of beach to the shot. The addition of the beach would complement with the lake and the clouds.

The timing could not have been more perfect to capture the storm in action! Especially over the lake! :)
