On May 5, 2012, it was looking like I might finally see my first tornado. I was sitting dead in the middle of a tornado watch area in Nebraska, with the watch stating, "TORNADOES...HAIL TO 3 INCHES IN DIAMETER...THUNDERSTORM WIND
GUSTS TO 70 MPH...AND DANGEROUS LIGHTNING ARE POSSIBLE IN THESE
AREAS." I, and about 100 other chasers, sat all day under a clear sky, watching various storms try to break through the "cap". but none did. Eventually, the supermoon came out, and I shot a picture of that and headed west to see if I could at least get some lightning shots (I didn't). Storm chasing is often about waiting and waiting and waiting and seeing nothing, but when you get on a storm you forget about all those down times. More photos and writeup here.
Note: This is the next in a series I'm doing on my photos with a crowdsourced ranking. You can see all 20 of the photos here.
