The first pretty little Landspout tornado on the Cope , Colorado day 28 May 2018. I’m going to call it a landspout but it did look like it was coming out of the mesocyclone so maybe full tornado , whatever was cool. Also met up with @storm_doctor and his son watching the storm explode when suddenly LANDSPOUT!

Striated supercell monsters the farmlands east of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Often while storm chasing you have to take what you can while moving so I’m usually ready to spot interesting foregrounds to take advantage of. #stormchasing #storms #weather

Beast Mode , a massive beautifully structured monster just south of Canadian Texas 29 May 2018. It is astonishing what a supercell looks like if viewed from the right position when they are really spinning. About 15 mins later it dropped a brief tornado mostly hidden behind a curtain of rain. Chasing with @ladzinski “I spend filters like pennies” , @skiparmstrong “now is to early to joke about my dead red” , @tobypike “have you guys seen how organised my luggage is?” @krystlejwright “you don’t wanna go in there nick” #stormchasing #storms #supercell #weather

One of those shots you get when you are forced to stop. In this case it was a flat tyre and a committee all trying to decipher the bizarre way you get the spare out, talk about painful. @ladzinski pulled a cracking time lapse from this spot and @skiparmstrong was attracting mosquitoes. A truck passing from behind heads straight at a pretty evening storm in Texas , north of Childress I think. I believe @tobypike playing chicken with this truck too. It was another 17 hr drive by gun chase driver @krystlejwright #stormchasing #storms #weather #timexposure #storms

Hammered and blinded by dust in 150kph dry microburst winds is photographer @ladzinski who is always up to embracing nature in all its gritty awesomeness. 25 May 2018 near Childress , Texas. #dust #stormchasing #storm @skiparmstrong was in amongst it too , also chasing but less keen on the dust was @krystlejwright (ace driver) @tobypike (nicest travel luggage)

Just one of many landspout tornadoes near Cope , Colorado on 28 May 2018. Landspouts are non-mesocyclonic and weaker tornadoes that can form in cumulus moving into a supercell. They can still be destructive. #tornado #landspout #stormchasing #weather chasing with @ladzinski @krystlejwright @tobypike @skiparmstrong

A tornado begins to “rope out” north west of Cheyenne, Wyoming on 27 May 2018. The EF2 damaged homes in the rural community of Federal. Part of “Last Day on Earth” essay on severe storms. Chasing with @ladzinski @skiparmstrong @krystlejwright @tobypike #stormchaser #storm #tornado #weather

Driver @krystlejwright hammers the car ahead of a lowered wall cloud sucking up dust . In New Mexico. Storm chasing is actually more like storm surfing where you just stay ahead of the rain and outflow winds.

A supercell storm pushes dust ahead of it near Amarillo, Texas 4 June 2018. A rusting Ford “Thunderbird” witness to the spectacle. Part of a Nick Moir’s series “Last Day on Earth”. Chasing with @ladzinski @krystlejwright @skiparmstrong @tobypike #storm #supercell #duststorm
