Behemoth. Prometheus. Gargantuan. Zeus.
These are some of the words that have been swimming through my mind since capturing this beast. (Click to view full size on black.)
It was big. So large that I grabbed the camera and shot, shot, shot, and shot. HDR. HDR panorama. Different angles. Different techniques. Then I looked at the national radar and saw that this was far, far away–which means it is even larger than it looks! I wonder what it must have been like to stand beneath such a beast. But if I had, I wouldn’t have this photo.
I’ve been searching for the proper name for such a storm. They shower hurricanes with names, but storms like this go unnoticed and unclaimed. It’s a pity, really.
