Top Storm Photos of 2009

Even though there might be a small chance for severe weather in the next week or two, I thought I'd post my favorite storm photos of 2009. I was lucky enough to capture some decent shots in 2009, especially tornadoes. And despite the crappy year that a lot of chasers have had, we've had probably our best year yet...intercepting tornadoes in every month from March until July. Here is a link to last year's top photos.

A 'firenado' back on March 6th, almost as good as the real thing up close:


April 26th, near Roll/Crawford, OK:

Roll Oklahoma Tornado

May 6th, 2009 in Linn County, KS a brilliant sunlit wall cloud and rainbow beneath a low-topped that didn't even make it into the reports, but is forever etched into my mind:

Linn County Low-Topped Supercell + Wall Cloud

May 30th, Clinton Lake Dam, KS, Lightning shot with the moon setting underneath the updraft :

June 15th, 2009 near Kinsley, KS:


June 17th, amazing structure just west of Grand Island, Nebraska (wish I were just about 2 miles further east) :

Grand Island, Nebraska Supercell

June 17th, the Aurora, Nebraska tornado as it begins to cross back north of the highway...a few miles west of Aurora:

June 20th, Princeton Kansas 'mothership' supercell which produced several, weak, brief tornadoes, but the structure stole the show:

Although I didn't have the tornado count as last year, 2009 will be a memorable year. Had several great chases with amazing structure that will never be forgotten!

Amazing Pictures Dick, Thanks for sharing man!
