Tall CG from Elevated Left Mover

Tall CG from Elevated Left Mover

[Part 3 of 3] Another sunset CG stroke from the elevated, anticyclnic supercell followed a broadly undulating course with the usual numerous little wiggles superimposed thereon. This was an amazing scene and moment, one of those uncommon but most welcomed storm experiences that I knew, right then, would be a lifetime memory. After this shot, two factors made us depart: the storm's tendency to fling CGs ever closer to our location, and the frigid conditions. I wasn't wearing a jacket, and it was cold up there in 50-degree outflow air, with gusty winds, at 6,000 feet elevation. It's hard to take steady shots when one is shivering and threatened with grave risk!
