"You like farmland, I like sky." —David Dyer-Bennet, commenting on the previous post
You should like this then David:
The atmosphere is a sea of air, about as deep relative to the Earth as the skin and fuzz of a peach is to the peach.

David Dyer-Bennet: "Yes, that will do! The skies are much more interesting in that film than the farmland they're mostly shot over :-) . I'm always surprised how few of the people struck by lightning each year seem to have been storm-chasers. Yikes; and in the end credits I see the clips are available in 8K video, even."
DavidB: "I am awed with the advances in storm photography over the years. When I first started photographing storms we shot Kodachrome, Ektachrome, and Super-8. Wait a few days to get it developed and then invite other storm chasers and storm researchers to view the results. The advent of consumer video (VHS, 8-mm) was a breakthrough. Although not digital (yet), you could review it immediately. With modern, high-resolution digital cameras, the world of storm chasing and storm photography has advanced beyond anything I would have imagined when I started back in the early '80s. Mike O's video is a great piece of work."
Peter Conway: "Wow, that is truly inspirational work!"
Dave New: "As a trained Skywarn spotter (ham radio call sign N8SBE), I found the spawning of wall clouds, funnels, and tornadoes fascinating to watch. Much better than the usual poor resolution static slides that are used in training. They talk about the circular motion in wall clouds, etc. but actually seeing it in fast motion is very instructive."
