    Just ironed out a deal with a writer out of the Quad Cities (Iowa) for the use of my picture on the COVER of a hard cover book that he is hoping to have out by fall sometime. He is planning on about 15,000 books selling.

    This is the picture... and BTW it is a weather book.

    Wow Doug! That's awesome! The picture is alright too...;) Actually, that's an awesome picture. I love how the funnel is coming down too. It would be awesome to be able to watch the storms roll in like that.

    Congrats again and let us know when and where this book comes out.

    WX was an old morse code abbreviation for weather, but is still used today.

    Amazing shot by the way, and nice book deal! :thumbup:
