p.1 #1 · A Road Less Traveled


Looking south down a yellow sandstone road near Mankato, Kansas as a mean-looking gust front overtakes from the west. This storm was tornado warned, but tornadoes would be less-than-likely. However getting hit by debris being blown by 75+ mph winds could be dangerous regardless! Taken with a Sigma EX 10-20mm f4-5.6 on a Pentax K-x. Comments and evisceration welcome in equal measure.

Wow - I love this. The road about to be swallowed up, the amazing clouds bearing down - well done!

We started out right under this splitting storm (at Norton, KS) and chose the right split, but it went outflow dominant on us and we raced east trying to get ahead of what we hoped would be a picturesque gust front. The storm was expanding almost as fast as we were driving and it took us quite a while to finally get out in front of it (near Mankato). I'm glad that the place we decided to pull over had this great yellow clay road and the terrain that it did. We had only a few minutes before it overtook us and we would try to race out front to get another chance at it. You would not believe the temperature drop when that gust front overtakes you.

Thanks for the comment!

What a cool shot, Darren. Love the intersecting of the clouds, and dirt road. Nicely seen.

Cheers,

Love the colors and the enormity of that cloud formation. The atypical composition works well here too. Nice one.

Great composition on a really dramatic image. Better yet, shot with a Pentax k-x! Nicely done!
