PHOTOS FROM STORM-INTERCEPT TRIPS
by Roger Edwards
Continuing a tradition, I've uploaded a gallery of ten favorite photographs from my 2016 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 couple of tornadoes, this was another year of High Plains storm structure. Choosing only 10 favorites is hard--they could have been arranged in any other order on another day. 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...
