When I took this photo last night, it appeared to be more haze than anything else. However, when the image has been enhanced/edited, it’s obvious that these clouds are more than haze.
Have I mentioned how much I dislike night shooting, by the way, unless I’m out in the country?

As I was driving to class, I got stuck in a spot of traffic on Rt. 38 Eastbound. Since I carry the camera with me in the front seat, I took the opportunity to grab an observation since it was cold and clear. I figured it was going to remain cool and clear all day, and, for the most part, it did.

Cloud Types: Cumulus
Cloud Coverage: Scattered
Temp: ~60* F
Other Weather of Note: Windy.
After my jaunt to Blackwell, I’d planned on taking photos on the Riverwalk. While the part of the Riverwalk I’d planned on shooting at had been torn down for construction, I still was able to grab some amazing shots over the small lake/pond across the street from Naper Settlement. You can see most of those photos over at Flying Tiger Designs once I’m done processing them.

Cloud Types: Cirrus, Cumulus
Temp: ~57* F
Other Weather of Note: Windy, especially on top of the hill.
Following Intro to Meteorology Class on Thursday, I opted to go exploring at Blackwell Forest Preserve. I’ve been to the Archery Range tons of times before, but had never been on top of the hill that overlooks the range; I decided to change that today. The following image is from my walk up the hill (maybe ~50% of the way up, facing East), and I was rewarded with brilliant blue skies and a treasure trove of colorful leaves.
Over the next week or so, I’m going to be using the site as part of my Introduction to Meteorology project. Anything tagged with the “Intro Weather” tag will be for the aforementioned class.
