Chariots of Water



He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters; He makes the clouds His chariot; He walks upon the wings of the wind.

(Psalm 104: 2-4)


All pics, May 13, 2008 from the commute into work approaching Little Rock, Arkansas.

In a perfect world these clouds would have happened behind a beautiful Arkansas bluff. (They probably did, but I wasn't there.) So I pulled my car to the side of the Interstate and took these from a mound in an cloverleaf loop (I-430 /Maumelle) and tired to cut out the clutter.

For the purists among you, most of these are enhanced. The cloud play is very real, but I have darkened and dodged for effect.

This particular storm did not produce any tornadoes, but this season has certainly eclipsed any I remember for tornado activity.

  1. Kirk, those are some great clouds. I was able to capture some on my way into work too. Check out http://blog.reflectionsbythehill.info or http://www.flikr.com/chill_work.

  3. Had to remove that last comment, as a writer I could not live with the typo I made. Anyway, great cloud shots here. I have some pretty good ones from the North Slope in Alaska where I work but I have not posted them as of yet. I stopped by because you mentioned Man from Snowy River as a favorite movie. May I suggest you check out my blog if you are interested in finding out a bit more about the man behind the idea for the movie.
