Copenhell Day 1

Day 1 at Copenhell VII (AKA Copenhell 2016) is in the books. Day 2 begins in a few hours. Today’s lineup is a good one. I’m really looking forward to Solstafir. Amon Amarth, Megadeth, Epica, Kadavar, King Diamond, Abbath, and Artillery are also on today’s bill. I haven’t seen King Diamond since the 1980s. Unfortunately, Abbath’s and Artillery’s sets overlap so I won’t be able to see all of them both.

Day 1 was lots of fun until things got wet, very wet. The lightning was impressive. My bike ride home was filled with it too. I wanted to see With The Dead, but I was soaked and headed home for a warm bath instead. Alice Cooper’s set was my favorite of the day.

The best skies are those at dawn, dusk, or during changing weather. Today’s photo, from the Umeda Sky Building, featured two of those three.

Today’s photo was taken just after a big storm. In fact, the observation deck in the Umeda Sky Building was closed due to lighting strikes in the area just before reopening in time for me to grab this image.

Last weekend’s trip to visit Whitman College and Oregon State University featured “between storms” conditions nearly the whole time. As a big fan of crazy clouds, I was pleased.

Even though I’ve lived in Oregon for almost 16 years, and had visited the state many times before that, this was my first time in Corvallis. This building on the OSU campus was awesome, especially with the dark clouds closing in. Turns out the building is a residence hall! They didn’t make dorms like this where I went to school…
