Nikon Awards Prize to Badly ‘Shopped Photo, Hilarity Ensues

Being a Weather-Savvy Photographer Part 2 – Warnings, Watches and Advisories

In my previous article about the National Weather Service’s Forecast Discussions I touched briefly on another set of products the NWS releases: outlooks, advisories, watches and warnings.
