A Photo a Week Challenge: A Change in the Weather

Mirror Lake Highway moving storm

In Utah, the weather can change very quickly. During the fall and winter, you hear people saying “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” I’ve always found it interesting that if the forecast calls for rain, the chance has to be higher than 75% for it actually happen. With snow, it only has to be 15% for it to happen. I’ve watched a weather forecast where they were predicting a 20% chance of snow while it was actually snowing at same the time. On a beautiful fall Sunday afternoon, we took a drive up in the Uintas. As we were heading back down the mountainside, a storm started moving in, and this was our view.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF SIGNS THAT THE WEATHER IS CHANGING OR AN INCOMING OR PASSING STORM.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

    1. Thanks! It was a lucky get, but I think that’s true for a lot of pictures. Even when I’m doing a portrait shoot, some of my favorite ones aren’t formally posed but happen spontaneously.

    1. There was some lightning and thunder, and it rained very hard…for about 15 minutes. But we were able to drive out of the storm. It was heading east and we were heading west. 😀
