The shotgun thunder that accompanied this was a 'loosener' from the 2am chase starting from Joplin 7th May

10 From me and 8 of them from Arizona!! This way more people can put up the Tornado Season Pictures.

Btw If it's Extreme adrenalin rush Storm Chasing it has to be the Tornado Tours whereas if you are a Photography Buff and like to take pictures of Lightning, Incredible Landscapes and have a sedate 5mph Storm Chase then Arizona is a Must for you!

Some amazing photos so far!

Being on Tour 1 last year was pretty frustrating, but still got a few pics and had a great time.

So devastating not being able to go this year, the first Spring since 2008 that I won't be going chasing.

Been having loads of dreams about it recently which just makes it even worse.

One of the dreams was bad though, we didn't even bother flying to the USA because prospects were so bad, we stayed in a hotel at Heathrow for the whole time until the last day when we drove to Wales because there was a slight chance of thundery showers haha.

Anyway hope everyone who is going this year has the most amazing time, and sees a lot of action. It's honestly the best thing I've ever done and I can't wait until the day I can come again.

Round two from me.

Got thinking about favorite photo's and the immediate reaction is always the 'tornado' or the 'lightning'. Granted they are all amazing shots and truly humbling to be around (Not that we chase of course,,, Just in case an insurance bod is reading). To me a lot of it was about the people, without the characters and the organisers the chase would not be anywhere as much fun as it is. So here are some of my people pictures.

I apologise if anyone's missing. Tour 4 of course, would love to have been there for 1-3 but alas no lottery win.

These two because they show the intensity and concentration required for success.

Cannot wait to get back out there now :p

I think the nado one is mine, it's the same as my desktop image and I think I put it on your USB stick in the motel that night :D

Excellent photos everyone, I'll need to dig mine out over the weekend!

I got a decent one of the Fairview Elephant Trunk but have not posted it as I thought others would have posted it by now. Maybe they were just stuck in awe and the old Cameras were redundant!

Anyhow here is mine.

Here is a video from tour 2 when we sat under an old forecourt canopy and waited for a storm to approach. This is quite close to Joplin which took a direct hit 2 weeks later. Check out the shotgun lightning around 1min 48secs - there was a streamer if you look close enough that hit the telegraph wire that was just ahead.

I don't know how to embed you tube videos, sorry.
