About This Shoot
Date: 6 September 2012
Location: Central KS from Ness City to Rozel, KS
Shoot Type: Storm Chase
Rating:
Synopsis:
This successful late summer storm chase began west of Ness City late in the afternoon, intercepting a marginal supercell storm upon arrival after leaving work (worked a day shift this day). I followed this storm southeast, navigating mostly county roads through Ness and eventually northeastern Hodgeman and western Pawnee County. Toward sunset, the photography became really good with the supercell establishing multi-tiered structure. I found a brilliant milo field of golden and orange hues which complemented the soft, colorful sky with supercell storm structure to my west...near Rozel, KS. I continued to follow the storm south as several other strong to severe storms formed near the former storm. I managed to capture a few nice cloud-to-ground flashes complete with storm structure after sunset south of Sanford just west of Hwy 183.
