Pretty. 

Yes, it is. And yes, it can be. Yet Reed yelling tornado, Josh hangin on to a palm as building parts flash by his head and Frankie telling the world that Fargo is going to be inhospitable is what gets the clicks and likes. Makes no sense. But I will continue to show the weather in its beauty in stealth. It just looks so cool that I have to do it.

Still nine days behind the curve. Maybe some day I will catch up. 6-12 was a varied evening.

 

Had a weak 22 degree halo around the Sun as I got out to the firehouse. Taken with the 24-70mm at 28mm...

6-13 was a day of unsettled weather in the area. Rain in the morning here and a tornado in the Chicago area. So plenty of clouds around for sunset.

 

As the Sun was sinking into the horizon. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...

And the end of the color with the color on the flanks of the Chicago MCS as it slipped to my north. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...

6-15 was one of those evening that had a little bit of everything.

 

When I first got out there, there was a nice design to the cirrus. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm...

A bit later I tried a similar cirrus image but this time I used the GND to even out the light across the image. Of course, it kind of messed up the colors some. You can be the judge if it is too cartoonish or not. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm...

The actual sunset had a little bit of gold and a little bit of bronze. Taken with the 24-70mm at 57mm...

There was just a little bit of an orange flash to end the evening. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...

6-18 started a string of days that looked very similar. The pattern was stagnant with a slight disturbance in Missouri that would float cirrus over me for a number of days in a row. It started kind of lean.

6-19, stagnant pattern brings stagnant results. But not really. The volume of clouds was up on this day.
