Running to the Storm Cellar on the Farm

The visions of a farm bracing against a Montana storm had come true that afternoon. I’m sure the last thing I was supposed to be doing was taking a photo of the swirling maelstrom, but I couldn’t help it. What else are you going to do with a good tripod and a nice Nikon? I don’t carry around this stuff so I can go inside when dire and picturesque events are about!

Thanks again for all the nice feedback on the recent Newsletter (note, if you subscribe now for free, you get links to the previous release). So far, it’s been opened by 157.2% of the people on the list! I think this is because people are forwarding it around to their friends and family… that’s cool – thanks! I get all these stats from this cool newsletter software that manages all that stuff for me called AWeber. If you need to do a newsletter for your group, church, school, or whatever, I highly recommend it.

Running to the Storm Cellar on the Farm

  • Sarah

    Wow. Gorgeous. Of course, if I chose to comment on all of your photos, “Wow. Gorgeous” would probably appear below each and every one of them. Just amazing.

  • OMG! Awesome sky!

  • Where in Montana is this? I’m guessing Eastern somewhere…

    As always, good work! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • fantastic sky, and a bit scarry

  • Paul Cowell

    Hi Trey – sorry my comment is not about this picture (although it is cool) it is referring to your book. I did make an order, pretty much on the first day. I would like to know if the book is confirmed, is it confirmed that I was one of the first to get the signed print, date of expected delivery, confirmation number? I notice my credit card has been deducted, so it should be in the system. Thanks

  • Trey…great Wiz of Oz sky!!! Hope you equip stayed dry!

  • bob

    nice photo, signs of the times – 2 sattelite dishes on the house along with the UHF antenna

  • Great photo of the pending storm!!! As I don’t see any mountains in the background, looks like it has to be east of the divide. Unless you were in a really big valley, that is. Here in the Bitterroot, we don’t have to worry about tornadoes as our valley isn’t big enough for one to form. Saw enough of them in Michigan and on our trips through Nebraska!!! We don’t go that way anymore ๐Ÿ˜‰ !! Love how you captured the menacing sky, as well as the home, ranch equipment, and “dry grass” . I am curious as to where this was taken, also. Great job!!

  • Thanks all!

    Sarah – hehe sure you can say that any time – thank you!

    Kevin & Gail – It’s waaaaay up north by Canada near Rudyard

    Paul – Yes – all book orders are confirmed. Still waiting on the publisher for the street date. I’ll get the books a few days in advance to sign. This is the plan! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Super Duper! Just the right amount of grass to establish a ‘looming/foreboding’ depth.

    Trey, I’m at Ft. Hood for a robotics demo and might be able to do some shooting tonight in Austin on the way home to Utah. Suggestions?


  • I love the ominous feel of the sky and the peaceful, unassuming rural house –

  • Holy c***, this looks surreal.

    AWESOME shot man!

  • Richard Hales

    Really love the sky and the image as a whole. I may have desaturated the building and foregorund a little?

  • HeathAnni

    Wow, the sky is stunning – but I love the colors and details of the house too! It’s absolutely beautiful!

  • Fab sky, Trey. Love the huge foreground leading up to the house.

  • casusan

    Wow! Cool sky! Looks like a face or figure in those ominous clouds!

  • One of the Fantabulous photos of yours Trey… I am running out of words…I wish this makes it up in the HDR book of yours….

  • jason

    Beautiful sky… I just wish you had put in a little less grass in the foreground, and caught a little more of it… I think that would have been more effective.

  • Thanks!

    Mel – Well.. you can’t go wrong.. downtown at sunset is always interesting!

    The grass in the foreground is an interesting point. I looked at it both ways… I ended up keeping it – I liked the balance – but I certainly see your point! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hi Trey, great photo as usual. Congratulations on 20MM views!

  • jason

    that is why there is so much art out there… we each see things in a different way.

  • casusan

    oh darn did I miss the 20 millionith viewer??? !!!!heck!

  • This has to be one of my favourite pictures.

  • That sky is amazing!

  • WOW! Great processing! You are best!

  • Roseann

    I’m surprised after reading all of the comments that no one seemed to mention that you can see a face in the clouds
