A line of storms formed East of Dallas / Ft. Worth yesterday (1-29-13). Several surrounding counties were under a tornado watch starting in the early afternoon. Decided to go east towards Denton and Decatur Texas to take a look. I was not expecting much, but was surprised when the storm was over us.. it was beautiful to watch. There was not much lightning once the storm past, but we were treated to mammatus clouds (below). Had a excellent time chasing with fellow photographers, Mike Mezeul II and Maegan Rachelle. I think we are all ready for spring to come!
I posted 2 images from yesterday that can be found on the main site: http://www.clouds365.com/1-29-13 and http://www.clouds365.com/1-29/1-29-13-part-2. Here are a few of my favorites from yesterday I had to share. Be sure to click on the images to view the larger high resolution images! Let me know what you think.
