The Advancing Storm

Storm bears down on Everglades

The utter calm of the Everglades sets the scene for the approaching drama as a storm advances from the Gulf of Mexico…The surface of the sea does not convey the destructive power that churns in the sky above, as the storm bears down on the stillness of the coastline and cuts the aqua plane with graceful waves of falling rain. Meanwhile the cumulonimbus cloud form blows out and we witness its anvil top forming. As the ledge expands toward our position downwind, the sky grows dark and the calm of the sea is shattered by the downward blasts of convective energy.
