oh culumus

oh culumus
Tallahassee, florida, usa.

the Tallahassee spring storms! The Way the atmosphere seems to "work" here, at this latitude, makes the clouds often appear as if one were in an airplane or maybe using a telephoto lens; these couds looks so so close that you could reach out and touch them!

Just a normal shot of cumulus clouds taken from the ground.

Even as i took these photos, from groundlevel, for me these clouds looked so richly "juicy", as if I were looking
at a great richness of a "cloud factory"
where the ability to have rain fall is so great that all I would have to do to have it rain, here, is to poke my umbrella up into the air and poke a hole in one of these clouds and then I would get a deluge!

An earlier "shower" must have given this block of houses about 3 to 5 inches of rain in about 20 minutes: the visibility was about 10 feet through the rain!

Ah...the Subtropics!
