Well, Here We Go

Welcome to my blog! A little bit about myself - My name is Adam Jones, I live in Columbus, Ohio and I do my best to live my passions of photography, aviation, weather and astronomy as often as I possibly can. I rarely watch television, as there is just too much to do in life. I have had my pilot's license since 2008, I'm a storm chaser and love nature. I'm also a freelance photographer that will most likely say "yes" when asked to shoot anything.

This blog will primarily be about my adventures in photography, as getting "the shot" can often lead down many paths that aren't walked too often. Probably the one thing for certain about my schedule is that it will change based on what is happening in the world. 

My last journey consisted of meeting up with a group of weather-minded friends to "chase" a Winter Storm with Blizzard Warnings on it. Our group is called "MesOhio." We have a webpage as well: MesOhio We cover everything from Severe Weather to photographing various locations around the state of Ohio. 

The storm was able to live up to it's warning status of "Blizzard" in the parts of Ohio that we travelled to. Visibility was zero at times with blowing and drifting snow. I've chased many convective systems but this is the first time chasing snow. MesOhio was able to help some people out, called in some weather reports, captured some good photos and video.

Numerous vehicles wound up stuck in the snow. Surprisingly, the majority of these vehicles had lost control and wound up in ditches or embankments along State Route 33 between Bellefontaine and Columbus, Ohio. The country roads remained pretty clear of stranded motorists.

After I had made my way back to Columbus and the snow had stopped, I made my way down to The Ohio State University Campus to Mirror Lake. I had always wanted to capture an image at Mirror Lake with the holiday lights and snow on the ground. I finally had my chance.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my blog! Please feel free to click on the link to follow myself and the adventures I get myself into.
