Set #3: Shots taken during drive to Green Hills – Nashville cloud photography (3/14/2012)

The first few photographs in this set were taken from our driveway; the others were shot from the passenger side of my father’s car as we drove from Lipscomb University to the Shell gas station in Green Hills at Warfield Drive. (Many blurry photos were left intact; although I deleted a few unusable shots, I decided to keep many of the motion-blur photography to mess around with and photo-edit later.)

By this time, the small but severe thunderstorm cell had passed by. The sun broke through the remaining post-storm clouds, hitting the freshly budding, greening treetops in a uniquely interesting and colorful way (as you’ll see in the photo gallery below). It is still quite difficult to believe that this May-like weather is happening in mid-March! Weird.

This winter’s 2nd (second) early budding & flowering phase is well underway — another highly unusual weather phenomenon. For the first time in my life (and quite possibly for the first time ever, or at least in recent history), the winter has broken into unseasonably warm weather to allow not one, but two separate early budding/flowering phases due to record-breaking temperatures! Far out.

Most of the shots in Set #3 were taken from the passenger seat as we drove; even the blurry images were retained for possible editing at a later time.
