Big storm comin'..

time to move on, taken from the top of Big lake knoll, Arizona, U.S.A. This was the second storm of the day, 15min's later it arrived. This was the pattern throughout the day.

Big country, big weather - very nice!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chris, unless you are in it! smile
That is some storm coming... I hope you gave the lady a lift to stop her getting wet
Frank L Croston.: It certainly was, Bill, the lady....Oh! gotta go!
This picture would be severely diminished without the presence of E. A very fine one indeed with some awesome precipitation on the horizon.
Frank L Croston.: Well she does embellish any picture she's in, thanks, Andrew, it was awesome when it arrived.

Oh fabulous! I love the drama in the sky. So lucky that you found a lady to pose for you smile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan...Glad you like it, I wish I could have captured the lightning, there was lots of it.
The lady, oh yes, I felt bad leaving her there....
there sure is some storm coming
Frank L Croston.: It was a big one, we ran!
What a fabulous dramatic image Frank! I bet your arms were large enough to protect your Lady...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Richard. I do my best smile

You are a true artist, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Just pressing buttons, Elisabeth, but thanks all the same.
What a great skyscape. Your model in the blue shirt does add to the shot as we can imagine her awe at the sight. Very well done.
Frank L Croston.: She comes in handy at times...smile Thanks, Mary.
Time to run for cover I think. Wonderful dramatic shot Frank
Frank L Croston.: We left soon after, Janet, just in time, one of the worries in these storms are the hailstones, at times they can be big enough to damage the car, glad you like the shot.
I'm glad it isn't quite like this here today but I also wish it would stop raining, even if it isn't as fierce as this looks.
Frank L Croston.: Sorry its raining, Brian, I'm sure it wouldn't be like this though.

If she would stand to the left, the non-rain part will pass over her. Excellent and a likey.
Frank L Croston.: Unfortunately it was moving that way, Louis...smile Thanks.
So dramatic... I like that Elizabeth is in this shot. She's like a witness to the storm approaching.
Frank L Croston.: It was indeed, Jacquelyn, we both enjoyed watching its approach, I only wish I could have captured one of the lightning bolts, which were spectacular.
Brilliant Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Michael, much appreciated.
That's carrying quite a load to dump on you, Frank1
Frank L Croston.: Which is what it did, Tom....But we were in the car and down the hill....smile
