PHOTOS FROM STORM INTERCEPT TRIPS

by Roger Edwards

Due to popular request (I didn't specify how popular), I've uploaded a gallery of my favorite ten photos from my spring 2010 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! Although I missed chasing on most of the big tornado days, this still was a very memorable and rewarding storm season. 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...
