PHOTOS FROM STORM INTERCEPT TRIPS

by Roger Edwards

Continuing a young tradition, I've uploaded a gallery of my favorite ten photos from my 2012 storm-observing trips across the Plains. [This doesn't include other weather or non-weather images that I shot while not on storm chases.] Even though we saw just a few brief tornadoes, we were graced with many strikingly structured storms. Choosing only 10 favorites is hard! 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...
