  1. Recommended camera gear??

    My advice is to go as wide and as fast as you can. I don't think I ever used a long lens on a chase, and once the wind, dust, rain and hail start flying you don't want to be swapping lenses. The 10-18 is a decent work horse, I'd be tempted to give the 17-40 a try out too for speed and image quality. You can always stitch shots together if needed.. Keep the 18-200 in the main bag for down day walk about use. Enjoy the tour and don't forget to put the camera down and take it all in sometimes! Ian
  2. Tour 3 build up and outlook

    Better late than never... The tour 3 gang on the road to New Mexico yesterday... (and then Childress for the last night)
  3. Chase Day 29 - CO/NM

    The weather sucked, especially as we missed a massive hailstorm with 4-6" drifts by a few minutes, but the stars tonight were a decent apology from the sky gods, a handy volcano provided the back drop.
  4. Chase Day 28 - S Dakota Down Day

    The Badlands always look awesome
  5. Chase Day 27 - Minnesota & Iowa

  8. Chase day 24 - Marginal W TX, E NM

    North West Texas has exploded into life
  9. Chase day 24 - Marginal W TX, E NM

    There's still life in the Texas sky
  10. Chase Day 21 - TX/OK/KS

    Fun day but nothing spinny, we did get battered by hail on the way to Norman, and a surprise lp cell popped up to deliver some structure too.
  11. Chase Day 19 - SLT risk KS/OK/TX

    This puts things into perspective, we were less than half a mile from the debris and storm track of what may be one of the longest lived ef5's on record.
  12. Chase Day 19 - SLT risk KS/OK/TX

    Enormous wedge. Reports of injuries and properties destroyed, we waited until it passed and checked noone needed help before heading to Salina for the night. We passed through Chapman, and with everyone's agreement were about to head back to see if they needed help, but good news came from a local who spoke to his sister in town, the tornado missed them by around 400m to the south, the debris signature was most likely the significant tree damage. Over 2 hours on the ground, averaging around a mile wide. Hopefully no fatalities.
  13. Chase Day 19 - SLT risk KS/OK/TX

    Another day, another huge tornado... (and the only play in town right now too)
  14. Chase Day 18 - KS/OK/TX - 17 tornadoes!

    One more before shower and departure
  15. Chase Day 18 - KS/OK/TX - 17 tornadoes!

    It's gone 1am and we just reached our hotel in Pratt, so here's a quick edit of one of the sets of twins
