A lightning bolt from a weak thunderstorm after sunset. Lipan Point on the Grand Canyon South Rim. Captured by Gene on 8/8/19
This incredible supercell thunderstorm formed north of Watonga, Oklahoma in the late afternoon of August 17, 2009 and drifted slowly south, putting on a structure and lightning show that still stands out as one of the best photography days on the Southern Plains over the last decade. Really an incredible chase day, we need more like this!
Panorama outside of Lovington, NM back on June 2nd this year!
Gene had a reasonably successful chase in NE Colorado yesterday. Although he thought he had planned well in terms of timing, the storms developed about 90 minutes earlier than the models indicated so his view of the Yuma County tornado was from about 10 miles away. The second pic is from the second tornado-warned storm in the area. A wall cloud with two areas of rotation N of Bethune.

Double lightning bolts from an afternoon Grand Canyon thunderstorm. Lipan Point in the Grand Canyon. 8/9/19
This double strike hit much closer than it appears (thanks wide angle lenses) in Waldo Canyon, New Mexico! This weekend looks like an extremely active period for the monsoon. Both Gene and Raychel have been active this last week capturing incredible monsoon scenes across the southwest.

As we updated last spring on, we’ve been dreaming up a new version of TornadoTitans.com to unveil to the world.
The work is beginning now and you can consider this space where you can watch it become a thing. We’ll have updates on social media as well of course, but keep an eye out now, because things are going to begin moving over the coming few months!
