Severe Weather

The lonely tree

Storm chasing isn’t just about tornadoes to me. Oftentimes the best images are ones taken before or after a tornado as was the case with this picture. Taken in rural Kiowa County, Colorado, I had witnessed a rain-wrapped tornado earlier and just sat and watched Mother Nature in all her glory afterwards. The sky near the horizon had the orange of the setting sun while above the blue / green of hail in the clouds made it a bit ominous.

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.

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.
