It's the big one! The final of the storm chase USA 2016 photo competition. The entries have been whittled down in the first vote, so we have the cream of the crop for the final vote. One small change is that on the tour 1 photos - photos 5 & 6 made it through to the final, but they were from the same day / same photographer, so just one of them is included in the vote, and the fourth place photo from that tour is now included in the final. 

The vote will close on Friday at 11am.

Good luck to all the finalists!

All photos were taking during the 2016 WeatherHolidays/Netweather storm chases by guests - if you'd like to join one of our tours, take a look at the WeatherHolidays website for more information.

Please note, those starting duplicate accounts to vote in this will have their votes removed, so it's really not worth it.

No' 12 for me, I like a close encounter. All great shots in there own way and something that I wish I had put on my bucket list before I got a fear of flying!

I have one like number 12 on my wall - and number 7 is on my wall!

Some really spectacular shots from some magnificent storms. Particular like number 3 - wish I saw the Wynnewood tornado!

Thanks guys! Number 12 is mine, and was definitely a close encounter. Though thanks really goes to Paul, Ian, Tom and Graham for getting us there, and getting us that close, safely! Thanks for the comments, genuinely made my day! :)

It's got to be photo 11: the vanishing point really draws the eye. Beautiful photo. You don't need a dramatic weather set piece like lightning or a tornado to make a great photo - an empty road and an interesting cloud can do the job just as well!

Just realised there is actually a little tornado in photo 11. But it's not the immediate focus of the photo and it still gets my vote!

There were actually three tornadoes on the ground at one point from that storm, was very fortunate to witness it!

It's a brilliant shot that captures the memory of the day perfectly. Driving down the dirt road towards the tornadoes was probably the best fun I've had on tour. I do have videos of that day on my website - brilliant memories!

It's a toss up between 2, 7 and 11. I can't decide out of those three.

      Hello, just wondering if any of the Tour 5 guests are on here?
      Only days to go now... Does anyone have any questions regarding photography equipment before we head out?

      Hi Guys, 
      My name is Matthew, I am studying my Masters in the Royal College of Art currently in London but am from South Wales.
      I am pursuing a photographic project surrounding the community and people and action of 'Storm chasing'. I am fascinated by this process and the potential excitement of the discovering and finding storms and am looking to work with people nationwide as well as potentially internationally.
      If anyone is willing to invite me into this world and discuss things further please do get in touch. This is a self funded project and something I have been thinking seriously about for a while now. I am very keen to form a collaborative piece of work with you as individuals and as groups.
      My email is [email protected] and my Mobile number is 07534082955
      Kind Regards,
      Matthew

      Good morning 
      My partner and I are both professional photographers, one shot that’s been on our bucket list for too long is the classic coastal storm / lighthouse shot. We’re planning to travel to Porthcawl tomorrow to capture Storm Brian, any tips or advice would be most welcome…

      Good evening! 
      I am a British photographer who is planning a new documentary photo story for 2018. I want to make work about storm chasers, of all ages, what drove them, their interests and lifestyle. Basically everything they do. I understand that I don't have storm chasing experience, but it's more about the people that I am interested in. If anybody is interested or knows of some great characters who would like to be involved! Please get in touch!
