stormfront

 

having started out the day with some cloud cover, we had visited the aqueduct at caesarea. just after finishing my shoot there, we got a heck of a rainstorm that lasted about a half hour or so… our next stop was to visit some of my wife’s family in haifa, the northern port city in israel on the mediterranean.

the family visit completed, we went to visit a couple of sights. here is the port city from above as a stormfront was moving in (or out).

imminence

a few minutes after the previous shot (the advance) and the storm clouds are now seemingly clawing at the aqueduct in caesarea, israel.

shortly after this series of shots, we made our way to the car just in time. it was a heavy downpour, alright…

the advance

on this morning the light was constantly changing as clouds were periodically moving in front of the sun and then away again. we were on the site for a couple of hours and eventually, it became apparent that a storm was coming off of the mediterranean sea. here you have then, the aqueduct at the beach in caesarea photographed with a storm advancing towards shore.

well weathered

Well Weathered

oh, the stories this well weathered fishing shack could tell: long, tough winters of snow and ice; beautiful summer days with glorious sunsets; storms of all kinds; in short, life on the rock…  located in green point, nl, this scene was photographed in the late afternoon as a rain storm was pushing towards me – it was rather blustery indeed on this early july day!

storm over ‘old faithful’

Storm Over 'Old Faithful'

returning to vancouver from toronto, i opted to drive the whole way back through the northern united states. i spent a day touring yellowstone national park, home of the world-famous old faithful geyser – aptly named so because it erupts at relatively steady intervals.

it had been a splendid early fall day in october as i awaited the next eruption… the sun was progressively disappearing as a storm started to push through. dejected that the weather was changing for my one and only opportunity to photograph this wonder, i half-heartedly started shooting when old faithful finally blew its steam. when it had finished, i returned to the car and kept on my way through the rest of the road back to the campsite.

it would be a couple of weeks before i got my slides back – imagine my surprise when i witnessed the scene as it had been captured – i fell in love with this shot!

into the storm

Into The Storm

on the outskirts of drumheller, alberta are the famous rock formations known as hoodoos. unfortunately, i just could not get inspired to photograph them properly, so i gave up and instead trekked through the back roads… at one point i came to a crest and i could see a storm approaching. i got the gear out and set up right in the middle of the dirt road. just as i finished, it started raining… heavily! but, i did get this shot off!

storm over the rock

Storm Over The Rock

my return drive from san francisco to los angeles started out as a rainy, misty, grey and miserable day. it seemed as though i was outrunning the weather i was trying to leave behind… alas, it did catch up to me eventually, but not before i got this wonderful shot of the storm over morro bay.

morro rock, the extinct volcano peak, “… was first charted in 1542 by portuguese explorer juan rodriguez cabrillo, who called it el morro, the spanish geographical term for a crown-shaped rock or hill…” (from wikipedia)
