    either side was kinda green in color too (the clouds, which means tornado possible?? :eek1 )

    it was a cold and wet ride over washington pass in July... got to test out my new rain poncho too :evil
    the picture didnt really show the rain, as it was that light sprinkley stuff thats just cold!

    I've seen way too many of these! Its amazing how fast a could like that can build, just an hour or two will do it. Plus, in weather like that, there is no wind to disperse the smoke either! Great picture, thanks!:clap :cry

    That was the ending of a trip to Hungary. On our way back we met some bad weather.

    That was coming back from Croatia, in the same place as on the first two pics (norhtern Slovakia). I guess it always rains there (at least each time I'm there it's raining). That time a rain turned into a flood, that not many cars/bikes could pass. The roads were covered with ca. 30cm of mud and stones. The pic has been taken afterwards, as dealing with the flood was too hard to take photos meanwhile.

    A happy trip to Croatia in May. Whay a surprise!! Mediterranean spring...

    Here's the South Rim of the Grand Canyon filled with smoke from wildfires last summer. Visibility was down to ~8 miles, where it's usually well over 120 miles.

    Solo Northern Nevada - doesn't look too bad. Rain, hail and snow for 30 miles through an Indian reservation over those mountains.

    Poked out the other side - completely soaked and freezing (all my gear sucked) but the sun was shining and I only had another 25 miles to get to a hot spring.

    I had just traveled 11,000 miles,and I was still getting used to the fact that it would turn dark at night in the southern latitudes.
    I had been to New Mexico so many times in the summer,yet the monsoon still took me by surprise.
    I stopped in Cuba to make a connection,just after taking this rare ( for me)
    photo while cruising.
    I walked out of the store and the night was blacker than black and the wind was really blowing.I know I just escaped a deluge.
    the thing is,I thought I was going to try a shortcut through the James Mtns. that afternoon to save time.I was informed by a local that it is even hairy in the daytime,and no time saver.
    next time
