    • Hi Noah,
      Thanks for you comment. I’m beginning to realize that there are now a lot of photographers looking at my daily weather blog (that I originally set up for more local consumption!) so I figured that discussing the photos would have some value. Glad that you agree!

      Cheers,
      John
