PHOTOS FROM STORM INTERCEPT TRIPS

by Roger Edwards

After good reception for the 2010-20 versions of this, I've retroactively uploaded a gallery of my favorite ten photos from my spring 2009 storm-observing trips across the Plains. [This doesn't include other weather or non-weather images that I shot while not on storm chases.] Ranking these is hard! It was an adventuresome season full of great skies. I've picked these completely on my own taste, for their beauty and/or uniqueness. Captions are minimal, so that the photos can speak for themselves. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by...
