Thunderstorm moving off to the North East... I was located a mile South of Vernon... This was before I got really deep into storm/weather photography... Not sure if there is a rule about Personal Vehicles in shots, if so I apologize...

Really looking forward to the return of chase season & getting out under the storms with the tour - I really love watching the expressions of wonder when looking at scenes like this one from May 31, 2010 between Boise City and Guymon, OK.

Fast moving storm front passes by catherine Hill Bay wharf, NSW, Australia. A demonic face shines down upon the Wharf - it wasn't added by photoshop, all i did was adjust shadows and highlights and add some clarity.

Double Strike - Tornado Warned Supercell 4/28/14 One of my best chase days from 2014. This is a cut from my video showing a double strike of lightning on a tornado warned supercell. This took place near Pana, IL. Low tops that day for the most part, but these storms still packed a punch.
