:star: Witness the power of nature...:star:


Here's the silver lining of yesterday's chase, which essentially amounted to a bust ^^; Storm coverage was limited in our target area. The HRRR (weather model) ended up nailing the forecast, with storms firing in northwest Kansas and western Oklahoma but not in south-central Kansas. The paramaters were awesome. Adequate instability, great EHI values, plenty of bulk shear and moisture, backed surface winds, clouds cleared out early enough for daytime heating... but nothing happened. Gonna guess the wind profiles didn't have enough veering with height to sustain updrafts past their initial push. That, or the bad luck of 2012 just continues :P Did get a couple keeper images of some weaker updrafts earlier in the evening (one of which looked moderately supercellular) but nothing to write home about. All in all, it was really just nice to get out with friends and take photos again :)

Looking at the sun in this image makes it feel like it's burning into my retinas. Great work!

Wow, that's intense. I live in Wichita and I sure missed seeing a sunset like this. The weather in those storms just didn't generate the rain down here that it did up around Lawrence. Great shot!

Too funny because I take a lot of sunset photos from a spot about one mile west of there. I must have been sitting on my butt in front of my computer at the time. Sorry I missed it. :)
