This is the "end" of the supercell pictured previously. Sometimes watching them shrivel away can be just as beautiful as watching them tear up the earth. As the sun lit up the remains of the cell, you could really see the atmospheric wind shear at work, causing the updraft to spin even as it tilted over and died :nod:

This was 14mm on a full-frame camera, so the striations at the top of the image were pretty much overhead in person. Getting really close and tight with this well-rounded supercell in South Dakota with Chris and Sarah. Had to dodge some hail shortly after this in order to get ahead of it :nod: Glad I snapped a frame while we were moving at this point, because it was one of the best looks we had at the storm during its stronger phase.

This is one of those images that makes you do a double-take when you open it for editing. Didn't notice any funnels/tornadoes at the time while chasing this storm through South Dakota, but after applying a little clarity and contrast to the storm in post... I'm about 80% certain there's a broad funnel in there behind the rain curtains! Look for the darker strip of rain along the horizon, then look directly above that. Awfully suspicious feature in my opinion! :P Can't really count it as "seeing" a tornado, but still a cool find after the fact :) Hopefully more slow-moving photogenic storms like this to come in 2015! :la:

Rokinon 14mm

When chasing, a perfectly open view of the storm is desirable. However, sometimes the sky needs some element in the foreground to give it scale. This old abandoned schoolhouse provided just that, and made for a surreal scene in front of this supercell :nod: Not actually 100% sure if it was a small schoolhouse or some other structure, but we sure were glad when we found it! Definitely the cherry on top for this scene :nod:

So I just finished uploading all my stuff from the May 26th chase... so how about a little day-before-the-day action, May 25th? =D Started out in northwestern Nebraska hoping for storms, but ended up blasting north to this cell coming off of the Black Hills. The hour-and-a-half drive felt like much longer than that as we feared the storm would surely die before we got there. Being greeted with this scene was a huge relief. To read all the details of the day, check out the link below! :highfive:

It starts tomorrow. And that makes me a little bummed :(
 
Oh well, it's my last semester. To say that I'm excited to blaze through this semester and throw myself out into the real world of getting a job/apartment/etc would be an understatement. I know it sounds a little silly, but I'm looking forward to having a more set schedule in life. There are lots of unknowns up in the air right now (Will I get my degree? Will that help me get a job? Where will I live?) and I can't wait to have them answered :nod:

That being said, it was a productive(ish) and much-needed winter break! Got a couple of chase accounts done over on the site (May 25th and 26th) www.framedbynature.net/account… among other things. Also starting to make some plans for a trip this year. Tough to get any dates solidified since I really don't know what my work situation will be come summer, but aiming for Great Sand Dunes in Colorado and climbing a 14'er or two while we're down there :la:

So, since Colorado and the mountains have been on the mind lately... how about an all-Colorado feature? :dance:
