Wild Weekly’s Photo Contest: Clouds

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and outdoor photography magazine Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggersThis week’s Challenge is: Clouds!

Do you remember as a kid looking at clouds to imagine the shapes and objects you could find there?

Clouds also means lighting storms.

You normally see clouds in the sky, but sometimes clouds do strange things. For example, have you ever seen clouds below the rim of the Grand Canyon? At sunset, during the winter? Doesn’t happen very often.

Sometimes storms can build very quickly, especially here in the desert. Here is West Temple in Zion National Park.

Now, here is the same mountain ten minutes later:

A couple of minutes later it gets even thicker:

Within ten to fifteen minutes, it looks like this:

Finally it cleared up about twenty minutes later.

Looking at this storm was an awesome experience, since it has been a long time since I’ve seen a storm like this. What I found out later is that the town of Virgin, Utah was flooded out and some friends lost their homes from this flood.
