Perhaps my career as a meteorologist would never have happened if I had never looked up at the sky as a kid. Every summer afternoon I waited eagerly for the brief relief brought about with the predictable thunderstorm. I was rarely disappointed.

Now, the thing about clouds are that they are never the same, moment to moment. Their movement, shape, and color provide endless hours of fascination and beauty. When sped up through time lapse, they become all the more mesmerizing. Watching and waiting for the unexpected results in only about 10 percent of any my images ever used. I look for unusual events which provide lots of drama. Still, when all is said and done, there is something about looking at clouds that calms the mind. - Enjoy

Most of my images are from my home. I let nature change the view instead of me changing it by traveling.
