I am an amateur photographer and a meteorology & astronomy enthusiast. I serve as a Linn County severe weather spotter for the National Weather Service in the Quad Cities. Helpful locational information for some of these photos is aided by Starry Night Pro 6, Google Earth 5 software and NIDS Radar Map.
