New on 500px : High Plains Supercell by TonySpencer by TonySpencer

A supercell thunderstorm over the higher region of the Great Plains in Colorado from a month or so ago.
I was with a bunch of great guys for this trip and we drove over 7000 miles in 12 days chasing storms from the Mexico border all the way up to the Canada border and then back again, passing through 10 states in the process.
This image was made towards the end of our trip after a mostly disappointing first week.
Chasing any natural phenomena is going to be a risk, chasing supercell thunderstorms around on Tornado Alley is probably the most challenging on a few levels. Getting on the right storm is the first priority but staying safe also ranks pretty high. With those two factors getting into photogenic locations to make images is not easy. There were many places we would have loved to stay longer or to have been in a position to stop at all but had to bail as the storms were approaching too fast. None of us realy want to total a $50,000 car in a hail storm to get a photograph!
After shooting this storm we drove into Texas ready for the chase the following day. After about an hour of sleep the tornado sirens were blaring out in Amarillo and a line of severe thunderstorms can tearing through town. A pretty scary night for sure!

New on 500px : Wyoming Fall by lazydesperados by lazydesperados

The final rays of sunshine fall on a horse grazing in a Wyoming field, as a storm rolls in from the Tetons. There is something poetic about watching nature’s calm before the storm.
Never underestimate the power of the mountains and the sea….

New on 500px : Hallett Cove Lightning. by Stephen_Scheer_Photography by Stephen_Scheer_Photography

Lightning captured over the Hallett Cove Conservation Park. The park has significant cultural and geological heritage, including evidence of an Australian ice age some 280 million years ago. The outstanding glacial pavements along the northern cliff tops are recognised as the best record of Permian glaciation in Australia and have international significance.
