You'll notice that the images of this animated sequence are not in perfect register. These were crop registered to improve it somewhat -- it gives you some idea of the buffeting force of the winds. The registration was significantly worse before I crop registered the images!



Mother's Day Gale!

A huge storm system swept across Lake Michigan last weekend. Sustained winds were in the 30-40 mph range and gusts were, based on my experience, up in the 50-60 mph range at least.

The horizontal rain pelting me while I was out shooting was quite forceful and very audible when it was pounding the hood of my squall jacket.
