This photo is from a few weeks ago on my trip to see the Grand Falls in northern Arizona. The clouds were stormy, but not really dropping a ton of rain…like these in the shot. Mostly virga, but still awesome to see. The skies were amazing that day and I had to stop every few minutes to snap another photo. Helped that I was on a 10-mile dirt road going only 25 mph.

This is panoramic made up of two, 3-bracket HDR photos stitched together in Photoshop after processing with Photomatix. Used Topaz and Imagenomic to polish it off. The clouds were so tall and spreading, I almost needed a third shot to get the tops.

Completely enjoyed my time up there that day…the weather was superb, the skies were amazing…the country was so interesting and new to me…hope to visit there sometime again!
