Fiery sunset on the Colorado plains

Many folks find the Great Plains ‘boring’ and yes, it some ways they may be.  However I spend a great deal of time out there during the first part of summer and have learned to fully appreciate the landscape.  Sunsets can take on the most amazing and brilliant colors out there like they did on this day.

Intimidating Nebraska shelf cloud

Southern Nebraska was the target for another storm chase.  No tornadoes to be seen today but more often that not, it is the storm structure that can make a great image.  This shelf cloud moving across the green pastures looking intimidating but was quite beautiful.

Kansas windmill at sunset

The sun was setting on another day of storm chasing on the Great Plains when this scene unfolded south of Goodland, Kansas. It reminded me of my grandpa’s farm in the same state and is punctuated by the windmill and crepuscular rays emanating from the sun.

Monstrous Oklahoma supercell

After chasing six tornadoes in southeastern Colorado, including the infamous Campo tornado, my storm chase continued toward the east and into the Oklahoma panhandle.  While the threat of tornadoes had greatly diminished, the supercell thunderstorms that remained were amazing.

As the sun set this beast of a storm was giving its last breaths of life.  The massive size of the storm cell is evident by the small, black dot on the horizon directly underneath it – that is a grain elevator.
