Day 5 (June 15): Southwest KS HP-Supercell, etc.

Filed under: Chase Accounts,Chase Trip 2009,Latest Chases,Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 10:42 am

HP-Supercell Structure Spearville to Kinsley, KS — Beautiful Mammatus at sunset Pratt, KS — Astronomical twilight storms near Haviland, KS

Not much time for a detailed report given time constraints (we have to hit the road again).  It was another fine day of storm photography on the 15th.  We followed the HP-supercell that first initiated northwest of Dodge City.  It became a beast of an HP supercell as it tracked from Spearville to Offerle to Kinsley as we followed it along Hwy 50.  At Kinsley, we headed south and continued to photograph the structure from southeast of Kinsley to Trousdale to Hopewell to Pratt.  We broke off the storm at Pratt then headed south toward Medicine Lodge taking a scenic way home.  After a pit stop in Medicine Lodge, we noticed a new storm developed north of Greensburg.  We retrated our steps back to Pratt on Hwy 281.  When we reached Pratt, a beautiful sky full of vivid mammatus greeted us.  We sat at a farm road just west of Hwy 281 a couple miles northwest of Pratt to photograph this atmospheric spectacle.  Just phenomenal!  After sunset, we drove back west toward Dodge City when another cluster of small storms formed with intracloud lightning.  The lightning illuminated structure was quite nice.  I took advantage of the low light capability of my Nikon setup (D3 + 14-24mm f/2.8 lens).  Results were very good.  Here are three images from this day:
