Mammatus clouds break and swirl behind the south wing of the Arkansas State Capitol Building (Little Rock, USA.) As "cold" Spring makes way for warm Spring. Mammatus clouds are sometimes considered tornado indicators, however, this storm broke into a bold blue day.
For the purists out there... I did give a minor dodge to the building, but this is virtually untouched, and shows the clouds as seen by the eye.
Equipment: Nikon D-300, 12-24 zoom
Kirk Jordan is a photographer for the State of Arkansas.
As is, my day job involves a lot of grip and grins of persons in suits, so I relish the after-hours photo hobby when I frame Arkansas' flora and fauna. I particularly like to take pictures of natural things in less conventional ways. I try to press beyond pure naturalism, to suggest the blending of the material and spiritual worlds.
