I was in Annapolis, Maryland this past weekend when word came around that there was a tornado warning issued for the area. At the time, it was partly sunny with a slight breeze…no big deal. About twenty minutes later, things changed.
So, what do you do when there’s a tornado warning and you’re walking around with a camera in your hand? Of course, you take pictures…lol.
Luckily, it didn’t start raining right away but started to get very windy. The contrast between the dark skies and the white steeples that many of the buildings have was incredible. I just kept snapping away, taking advantage of the photo opportunity that fell into my lap.
I was near the Maryland State House which is as solid a building that can be built and it was open for another half hour or so. After about ten minutes of shooting, the rain started to come down and I headed there for cover. It turned out to be a severe storm with high winds and heavy rain that lasted about a half hour.
Unfortunately, it kept drizzling so I had to pack away my camera for the afternoon. I did manage to get a few nice shots of the area before the storm hit. You can check them out here…
