While on storm chasing expeditions in the Tornado Alley in USA I have encountered many photogenic supercell storms. This photograph was taken while we were approaching the storm near Julesburg, Colorado on My 28th, 2013. The storm was tornado warned for more than one hour, but stayed an LP storm through all its cycles and never produced a tornado, just occasional brief funnels, large hail and some rain.

Camping beneath the beauty of the Aurora Borealis in Southern Iceland in the Fall of 2013. An odd sort of reflection with the tent and the sky happening.

A Love Mysterious

The sun sets as the majestic fog of the Pacific coast glides under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. The long exposure of the fog reveals a silky texture as the low clouds rise and fall over San Francisco’s trademark hills. All the while, tourists and locals alike make their drive along the mountainside, to try and capture the moment for themselves.
Rainy Night in the Piazza del Campo, Siena, Italy

It was a long day of travel and I arrived in Siena tired, hungry and a bit lonely after a few weeks of traveling alone. The rain was steady and did little to help my mood. Still, I wandered the streets until I found myself at the edge of the Piazza del Campo and was immediately drawn to the neon glow cast by the cafes along its periphery, reflecting off the wet bricks and providing an amazing backdrop for the silhouettes of umbrella’d figures making their way home on this rainy night.
