I did not take this, but this is an AWESOME cloud photo!

Here's the background info;

Photographer Camille Seaman didn’t originally begin photographing storms. In fact, it was her 8-year-old daughter who suggested that she chase the weather. At first, she was keen on taking expeditions to The Arctic and Antarctica, photographing icebergs, but after her daughter suggested storms as subject matter, Ms Seaman was hooked.
And that’s what exists when the artistic eye meets the chaos of the storm – swirling cloud patterns, sheets of rain, and gusts of wind captured in a moment. The Emeryville, California-based photographer told CNN that she began storm chasing in 2008, mostly throughout the Midwest.
She said that she had a good amount of help from experienced meteorologists. She said: ‘There is definitely some luck involved, and skill on the part of the forecaster and navigator.’ She said that the lack of control is in itself invigorating. ‘All I can do is make sure I am ready for the few moments I have,’ she said.

took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference
