PHOTOS FROM STORM INTERCEPT TRIPS

by Roger Edwards

Continuing a new tradition for the second year, I've uploaded a gallery of my favorite ten photos from my spring (and fall) 2011 storm-observing trips across the Plains. [This doesn't include other weather or non-weather images that I shot while not on storm chases.] Choosing only 10 favorites is hard in any year, but especially in 2011, which was (by far) my most productive season for tornadoes in particular, and storm photography in general! 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...
