Severe storms have been ravaging the Midwest lately. We’ve had plenty of severe storms and rain here in Iowa lately, but we’ve been very lucky compared to the losses seen elsewhere. Although severe storms can cause havoc, there is something that is beautiful about the evolution of a storm. I didn’t have to travel far for the images below. They were all taken within 2 miles of our house. The 1st panoramic was taken from our deck! We didn’t have much time to take many time-lapses of the recent storms, but have added a few clips to our stock. Perhaps you’ll see them in a montage at some point this year.
