If the sun hadn't been behind the clouds we would have been close to sun-down over here - I envy you that sight.

PS It was a tower full of mobile telephone antennas

Beautiful sunrise photos - love the first one!

Dewdrop said...

Michael, UNDER AN OVERPASS?! OH NO!!! With a wedge to boot! I am really glad that you are still with us. Being under an overpass is one of the worst places to be during a tornado for several reasons... 1. wind tunnel... (holy cow with a 1/2 mile wide EF3... sheesh) 2. You are basically a target for debris... everything being blown around will stop at you rather than the overpass... 3. collapse of structure.

Better places to escape a tornado if you are on the road... 1. safe structure... stop and get to security 2. a ditch on the side of the road (not a flooded one) 3. any other low lying area.

Wow. I would love to see a tornado, but that's a little too close for me even. Thank God you survived.

I read on Dewdrop's blog that you had to hide from a tornado! Not fun! Glad you're safe.

Terrific photos... wish I had a clear opening for shooting sunrise and sunset. Guess I need to get out of the house and drive around to find a good spot. Then I would just need to get myself up and out in time to take them! That might be the hardest part!

Rose said...

red sky in the morning, sailor's warning?

Craver Vii said...

Dude, I love the morning mist! These are great!

Oh, and yes, I was fully stopped (it was at a red light). My wife, knowing how I am always scanning for photo opps, usually drives, thus allowing me to go snap-happy in the passenger's seat.

Kim said...

I never get tired of watching a sunset or sunrise. Beautiful :)
