Storm Photos

The storm image posted by obelisk in the Pictures: Those Perfect moments thread got me to thinking there must be a lot of great storm photos in the SailNet community. It would be great to have a thread that pulls them together.

Here are a few of mine. These are probably pretty tame compared with what others have seen. I'ld love to see your favorite storm pics.

Chuck A - you need to quit with the modesty... those are some great pics.

Yea, that photo posted by obelisk is impressive...

I'm not usually thinking about taking pictures when a storm approaches, this is all I have ...

Yes, I an with Faster, why the modesty?

Those picks are just very good.

Now you've got me, I sail solo most of the time and when it is bad I have more to do then to take photos and even when it is not really bad I have not an waterproof camera that I can expose to the elements. The best I can get is this one and it is not a storm, merely a force 6 or something like that.



And departing port at the same day, a windy but otherwise nice day (the port is Mahon on Minorca).

Not quite a storm, but a front. Two different versions.

Not a major storm either, but a rather wet tropical squall that we happily missed (for once). These pictures were taken one after the other, the first looking forward, then looking aft.

Ahead to St Eustacia



Aft towards St Kitts

Chuck, was the front in your pictures blowing in from the upper bay/warwick, or from Rhode Island Sound? If that was the one that came from the north, I distinctly remember running from that thing in an open launch (she was empty, I was doing an inspection circuit of the mooring field)
