Double Rainbow 9/4/20111435 viewsA high pressure system over the four corners area combined with a low pressure system off the southern california coast steered subtropical moisture into Southern California this evening. This provided Altadena residents with rare summer showers and a thunderstorm this evening.

This double Rainbow was seen at Sunset.

Pot-O-Gold650 viewsLooks like I could hike up and find the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow. Looking Northeast from my Backyard.
Cotton Candy1332 viewsCumulonimbus Clouds are formed by strong upward convection associated with extreme instability in the atmosphere. This Cumulonimbus Cloud was rising above a Thunderstorm, towering over Mount Wilson (elev 5,700 ft).
Havasu Lightning667 viewsI captured this lightning using my first Digital Camera, an Olympus C-5050Z. I had it in "Manual" mode set for the maximum exposure of 16 seconds. I took quite a few exposures this way during the lightning storm.
Exploding Cloud646 viewsAnother cloud formed by strong upward convection in unstable air. In this photo taken at Lake Havasu, the nearly explosive vertical development of this cloud was awesome.
