May 24th 2014.  We took cover from hail at a gas station, but they weren't so large after all. Serious flooding in the city afterwards, though. Sorry for the weird distortion. The Samyang 14 mm 2.8 is a fantastisk sharp lens, but the moustache distortion is a pain to get rid of.

Great chase yesterday and some quick thinking.

"Oklahoma-style' t-storms Likely will be the most violent storms in N. America, possibly the world." This large farm was about to take the brunt of the storm, a lot of rain, strong wind and hail. 3 tornado's were spotted that day by others on the storm.

As the sun was lowering to set i expected it to go pink. But the light never reached so the nicest purple tinge happened amongst the blue/green instead. This is 6 x 10mm verticle images stitched.

After a good start to our summer storm season in Western Australia, things got quiet. However on Thursday Morning things went BOOM! Canon 5D Mark III with a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 did the damage for this shot!

Gettin' out the big guns. The shots from our Aussie friends are freaking INCREDIBLE. Took this during a flight to Naples, Florida - where I'll be heading in two weeks. We're expecting a major snow storm today here in Chicago - 8-12" with dangerous wind gusts. BRING IT - I've had it with boring weather, LOL
