Just a weather nut living in Phoenix, Arizona. Love to take pictures of everything from weather, clouds and lightning, to my daughter, friends and anything else that strikes me as cool.I maintain a modest little blog at MikeOlbinski.com where I post photos of things related to weather and a variety of other stuff.If you are interested in prints or to see my entire gallery, please visit my Photoshelter site!
