About This Shoot
Date: 29 June 2012
Location: Southwestern North Dakota north of Rhame, ND
Shoot Type: Storm Chase
Rating:
Synopsis:
This was a pretty good chase day, as Jay Antle, Evan Bookbinder, and I intercepted a low-precipitation supercell during the mid to late evening hours. We navigated a ranch road north of Highway 12 to photograph the storm to our north, northeast of the town of Rhame, ND. Just after sunset, the upper portion of the cumulonimbus took on a rather spectacular pink glow which provided for some very nice images.
