Filed under: Chase Accounts,Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 11:35 pm

Severe storms formed along a weak cold front across southwestern Kansas on July 14th.  I targeted the Scott City, KS area and was hoping to see a landspout tornado from the first storms that developed, however that did not occur as precipitation loading was too much in the first big storm near Scott City and outflow dominance prevailed quickly.  I followed this storm to near Garden City then went after another more isolated storm near Johnson, KS.  Another small storm formed near Ulysses at sunset which provided amazing warm hues and I managed to capture a lightning flash from this small storm amidst the amazing colors.  This was a fun little summer storm photography shoot!
