This past weekend tropical storm Don made landfall on South Padre Island and made for some truly epic clouds that usually form when I am a thousand miles away. Even with the rain, photographically it was a welcome sight and I immediately drove to the dunes to take advantage of the weather. All of these images can be considered HDR (High Dynamic Range) in one form or another and the argument of what is reality can come into question but in my opinion these are more true to life than what the was produced straight out of the camera. Of course thats the photojournalistic side talking. Enjoy.
