Storm chaser's gorgeous photography

NewImage

Tornado-loving BB pal Jody Radzik just turned me on to Extreme Instability, a collection of one intrepid storm chaser's breathtaking weather photography. The above photo that I've taken it upon myself to title "Act of God" is from a bow echo in Watertown, South Dakota on August 3. The photographer: "I'm driving along, having gained at least a small bit of ground again, when I see this white cross and a roadside chapel next to the road. No way. Slam on the brakes, pull over and jump out of the car and shoot fast fast." Extreme Instability

  1. I hope that cross is made of concrete or something suitably heavy. Otherwise, with those sharpened edges, it would make one hell of a projectile in a tornado. Imagine the photo of a church building speared with that thing.

  2. This puts me in mind of Lara ZIelin’s YA novel, The Waiting Sky. http://amzn.to/QKzoxW It’s all about storm chasing and some of Zielin’s imagery is really vivid, coming to mind when I saw this photo.

  3. I’ve followed Mike Hollingshead’s work for years, and he never fails to impress.  He’s got some amazing night-time photos too.  Well worth a look.
