A storm rolling into south Louisiana after a morning duck hunt with my dad.
I grew up hunting and fishing with my dad in south Louisiana. As I've gotten older and moved to a new city, I get to go less and less. The morning that I took this picture was the first time I had been duck hunting with my dad in over a year. We had a mediocre hunt and were packing up whenever it started to rain. We left Pecan Island in a hurry, and as we were driving away we noticed the rain stopped. I looked out of the rear view mirror and saw the corner of the storm. I asked my dad to pull over and I took this picture of the storm with my iPhone. My dad has always taught me to appreciate and observe nature. This amazing view of the storm that we had just driven through was an awe inspiring memory with him that I'll never forget.
