Blown About
Photo By Erik Perozo

  • Title: Blown About
  • State/Province/Region: South Dakota
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Town: Pierre, SD
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: This was a difficult shot as the shelf cloud was moving 45mph toward my location. As I was driving down the road trying to find some kind of foreground element to make the storm pop I noticed a small abandoned barn just off a dirt road to my north. I knew I only had seconds. So I drove as close as I could to it leaving me 300 yards away even still. As the storm approached I had to make a quick decision. Stay in my car, be in a safer environment and use my telephoto lens or take the risk and possibly get one of the best shots of my stormchasing career. At this point it was a no brainer, I had to get the shot. As a coyote after a rabbit, as was I after the barn. I was only able to snap 5 shots before the storm was bearing down on me. In the end it was worth the risk. Some say a picture is worth a 1,000 words. In this case a picture was worth my life.

    Thank you kindly Laura! I'm sorry for not responding sooner, as it's hard to get to a computer right now. I always enjoy the Spring with wonderful colors. I look forward to sharing some new Spring...

    Holly Molly that is just beautiful. That needs to be on the cover of OP magazine. Probably the most awesome image I have seen on here to date.
