Texas: Stormy skies in Amarillo (2020)

Scroll down to content

We’ve been in Amarillo for just over 6 weeks, and have had some fun capturing the stormy skies. We regularly take a walk around 8 p.m. or so, before sunset, because of the cooler temperatures. I used my iPhone XS Max and a Moment anamorphic lens for these photos and video.

Across the street from the RV park

Our RV park is located on the western edge of Amarillo, in a mostly rural area that is slowly building suburbs. Across the street from the RV park is a nice 5 acre lot that provides amazing views of sunset. We stay on the public side of the fence, we do not trespass. 🙂

Major cloud buildup for an incoming storm.

Inside the RV park

Sometimes it’s nice to see RVs in the foreground with the clouds in the background.

This row is a good area to get a nice shot of the RVs with the clouds in the background.

Video

I’ve also been trying to capture some video, so here’s a short (but windy) pan of the area across from the RV park. The traffic in the distance is Interstate 40.
