Another shot from the storms the other night here in South Dakota. June 16th 2014 7:26pm
This one was just west of the Fairview exit. I had just went by the Canton exit and there was the flipped semi and I had to actually cross about a foot deep water on the interstate and than took the first exit off.

New on 500px : Ride the Lightning by AaronGroen by AaronGroen

Photo taken in last night’s storm June 16th 8:08 pm on 463rd avenue by 290th street gravel. I stopped here for some quick shots because I had a small break in the rain but realized this was a very bad idea when I tried to leave. For a while I thought I was going to have to find the highest ground and wait til morning to try and drive home. It took me over 3 hours to find a way out of this area. Down every turn there was water flooded over the highway and even if I could have made it to the interstate it was closed already because water had even flooded across that as well. On the way here on the interstate I seen a semi flipped over and two cars in the ditch one completely submerged to the roof. Anyways noob lesson for today , do not stop in an area that is flooding to take lightning pics especially if on the way in many spots on the highway were already flooded over because it might keep flooding and leaving debris and washing out every gravel road so you can not get home 😉

New on 500px : Champagne supercell by MaxConradPhotography by MaxConradPhotography

Very rare and beautiful view of a strongly rotating supercellular thunderstorm lit up by frequent lightning and moonlight under a clear starry sky.
This photo was taken in the Champagne (Département Ardennes) near Rethel during a four day stormchasing tour through western Europe.

This is the same storm: http://ift.tt/1pvr60s


For several days parts of France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany have experienced a very rare weather pattern with exceptionally high energetic airmasses and strong wind shear. This lead to quite a few very strong thunderstorms racing over these areas again and again and again, most of them of supercellular nature.

During four days of strenuous stormchasing through France, Belgium and Germany mother nature showed us her power and beauty at her best – days like these are the reason for any stormchaser to go through all those agonizing moments of continuous decision making, weather forecasting, driving hundreds or thousands of kilometers may be for literally nothing, waiting bored for hours, missing the right spot, arriving too late or staying at the wrong place at the wrong time.

New on 500px : Beam me Up by CalebElliott by CalebElliott

“Beam me Up” – The West Point Supercell storm. – 6.14.13 Vantage point #3. Within two miles of the storm. This storm moved very slowly across the Nebraska landscape and eventually became stationary. It did get a tornado warning issued for rotating winds within the storm, yet no tornado actually took place.
