Wind Bringing Spring

Warm air will filter into the region later this weekend and provide a warm week for Michigan! So warm, southern lower Michigan may be digging at 70 come Wednesday. Claiming that would probably be more hype than correct forecast, but we can hope. Certainly looks promising considering the large ridge shown on models.

Past few days have been wind filled with passing systems. Today’s wind is due to the passing cold front a day earlier. Conditions were set up to make it look beautiful outside, but make the experience far different. (i.e Temperature near 40, wind chill lower 20s)

As cloudiness eroded yesterday, I eagerly awaited the moment to start a time lapse with a borrowed Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5 Ultra Wide angle lens. The low focal length, 10mm, allows me to fit more landscape into the shot. Telephoto lenses you see at sporting events are typically 300mm, so the larger the focal length, the narrower the shot. Think I have my time-lapse production skill down now, will use Lightroom to stitch the photos together.

As the clouds broke up, they formed cloud streets off of Lake Michigan. Took a few pictures of a visible satellite loop to see the clouds I was picturing at sunset.
