Here we go, it's the new round. I expanded the suggestion of "clouds" to include any weather-related photographs.

So can we get some clarification on our parameters? Is it specifically photos of weather events or could it be a photo of something emblematic of certain weather conditions?

Just follow your heart, my dude. I like to leave thngs as open to interpretation as possible. For instance when I see madness cat (again) I picture a man inside with his trusty confidante in a lazy, rainy, soring, day. So that there could be weather photo, being stuck inside on a shit day. I'm sure other may disagree but I think it could be as unclear as that of as clear as hopeys stolen tornado clouds

A favorite from the morning of my wedding



Just a neat one from a walk by the water.



Now that it's weather I feel like I should get something more wintry.

It looks like this outside today (although this photo is from a couple years ago):

Earlier that same day, it was a completely clear blue sky, and it started raining, a light sprinkle, but it rained for like 15 minutes, long enough to completely soak everyone and everything... no cloud anywhere in sight, and we had full view in all directions. It was really strange, everyone was looking up and talking about it. It was also very welcome because it was like 95 degrees for days on end and pretty brutal.

Not a contest entry - just saw the theme for this month and thought this might be a relevant addition.

This was taken in November. I believe tonight is the first time I've looked at these photos since then.

It was an eerie, gloomy, frightening, fuck of a day.

I might as well go for the one I didn't submit in the last round, unless I can find anything better.

HELLFIRE...

Yep that one is gorgeous.

I used to have two really awesome weather pictures. One was a sunset in Illinois captured at the precise right moment where it was just on fire, and the patterning in the clouds is beautiful. Another is a photo of mammary clouds from post-tornado clouds. I have no idea where they are, though. They were taken way pre-cloud, they're probably on my old computer that's busted.

I like yours too, Kaden. Do you just not want to enter? Because that one works.
