PHOTOS FROM STORM-OBSERVING TRIPS

by Roger Edwards

Continuing a multidecadal tradition now, I've uploaded a gallery of ten favorite photographs from my 2020 storm-observing trips across the Plains. [This doesn't include other weather or non-weather images that I shot while not deliberately on storm travel.] Choosing only 10 favorites is hard, even in a year leaner than most thanks to reduced travel and long periods of relative inactivity. The shots could have been arranged in another order on another day, or with a different photo or two swapped in. 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...
