Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie

The photo challenge of the week is to post a photo or photos of something that describes “eerie” to me.  This past summer, I was able to stand on my backyard patio and shoot images of an approaching thunderstorm.  Thunderstorms in the midwestern US always have an eerie quality to them.  You never really know where they’re going, or how powerful they are until they arrive.  Well, this particular storm never physically made it to my neighborhood, but as you can see from the lightning stokes inside the circular updraft, the circulation in the storm was very evident.  It put on quite a show for about 45 minutes.

Here is a slideshow of the “Eerie” lifecycle of this classic thunderstorm.  For an interesting effect, click rapidly on the arrows:

      Thank you. It really looks cooler in the slideshow mode, as opposed to the gallery view.
