Day Four at CVNP

This morning saw a squall line ahead of a cold front pass through around _p3a15496 AM. Rain came down “horizontally” at speeds up to 60 MPH. I looked at my phone and saw an extreme weather alert–tornadoes possible until 6:30. Whew! No tornados, so I slept in until 7:30. I’m now waiting it out as the rain falls. Clearing is _p3a1576expected around noon so I’m going to try for some weather shots; I have to check with the Visitors’ Center to learn where the best views might be. Winds will be high so I might be able to get some long exposures to blur the clouds.

After that, I’ll be going to the Kendall Lake area.

Author: Stephen Fielding Images

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. My publishing experience includes a wide variety of academic articles and a book, "The Practice of Uncertainty" (1999). The mission of my blog is to provide accounts of the natural environment, including photos, in order to raise awareness of its fragility and the impact of climate change. Climate change is the greatest challenge currently faced by humanity. I occasionally write about the impact of climate change using the principles of social scientific writing. To do this I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide. As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy. This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know. I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look. Best wishes, -Steve
