Relaxing and soothing videos of storms and tornadoes

At home, we have a Samsung “The Frame” TV. You know, one of those that you can put in “Art mode” and it looks like a painting. We don’t have it connected to the normal cable but internet only. As such, we only watch streamed content on YouTube or Netflix. Most of the time, we...

Average Center of Tornadoes by Year in USA

Yesterday, I calculated the “Tornado Capital of USA” to be Diggins, MO, based on the average latitude and longitude of all tornadoes between 1950 to 2017.

I have noticed this a couple of times when I look at my stats from the website. By reversing the image I realized this actually looked...

Basically, what you do is take a photo yourself in the first shot, go behind the photographer and put yourself in position for the end portion of the panorama sweep. Panocloning!

Face in the clouds

I took this photo outside Canadian, TX, back in 2009 while driving away from a storm that was dying out. This portion of the cloud instantly caught my eye since it was an almost perfect face in the clouds.   …and a zoomed in and higher contrast-version of the same photo.
