NATIONAL WEATHER CENTER
NORMAN OKLAHOMA

Page 1 of 4

Welcome to my gallery of National Weather Center photos, a somewhat randomly ordered selection of images in and around the new facility. It's a fluid gallery which will grow as more opportunities present themselves for me to use photography to depict and convey this facility's unique forms of architecture, different weather environments, and peculiar interplays of light and darkness. Please check back every so often and see if you can find new images that I'll sprinkle at random through the gallery.

You'll notice a substantial number of these images were captured at night. When the daytime throngs are gone is -- in many ways -- when the building itself becomes most alive with visual delights. [December 2007 nocturnal ice photos at NWC are cross-posted to our Ice Storm 2007 gallery as well.] Enjoy, and check back now and then for more additions...
