    On this day I traveled up towards Yarnell Arizona with the hope of capturing an supercell thunderstorm. A small upper level disturbance was approaching from the south and interacting with the North American Monsoon that day. As the day progressed I moved west and captured this series of photos starting at 3:46 pm. I noticed at the time there was some very intense rotation of the cell, especially right at the point of the updraft. This is known as a mesocylone. The updraft was incredibly intense and at this point the center of the mesocyclone turned a greenish hue. Soon after, it begins forming clouds near the ground about halfway through the series for just a brief moment. Then the storm soon collapsed and the heavy rain began, causing me to have to grab the camera and stop filming the series. It was quite a site and one of my favorite chases so far this year.

        Warning! Don't click on this video unless you want an experience. If you do choose to watch it, you will see Karen Seyfried, Alex Celeste Benes, and myself, try to stay ahead of the heavy rain and hail core to photography this beast of a supercell. This was beyond ominous, it was ... an apocalypse! Disclaimer - I made this for fun, to share with my friends. The production stuff is just my feeble attempt at humor, it's a joke, I'm not a film maker now (just the Director/Editor/Producer hah). Music by Imagine Dragons

          STORMS OF THE GREAT PLAINS - With Greg McLaughlin & Casey Zandbergen. A long day of storm chasing in Central Kansas pays off with a long rope tornado touching down near Gorham Kansas just as the sun sets. Also featured are Skip Talbot & Caleb Elliott of Wx-Pilot.com as they pursue the same storm, providing a rare aerial perspective of the storm. Music by William Stromberg. STORMS OF THE GREAT PLAINS is a documentary reality television series that enables the viewer to experience what it’s really like to chase severe storms on the Great Plains of the United States. This unique parcel of American real estate, known as Tornado Alley, boasts the greatest concentration of tornadic activity, more than anywhere else in the world. This half-hour television series places the viewer right in the middle of the action with veteran storm chasers as they endeavor to forecast and chase the most violent and dramatic thunderstorms on earth. High-definition 1920 x 1080 cameras follow these rogue weather enthusiasts as they navigate the back roads of the plains, searching for their next encounter with Mother Nature’s untamed fury. Each spring, the chasers analyze the data and carefully position themselves to catch a glimpse of the “storm of the day.” Storm chasing is very demanding and commonly dictates that chasers drive hundreds, even thousands of miles crisscrossing the Great Plain states in order to position themselves for the next storm. With their vehicles equipped with the latest storm tracking technologies, the chasers are able to analyze up-to-the-minute radar and satellite imagery, current observations, and computer forecast models that simulate the atmosphere depicting both current and upcoming weather patterns. These forecast models are sometimes scrutinized up to a week or more in advance, and update constantly as the actual day of the storm draws closer. All of these resources assist the chasers in making informed decisions to select the most promising storms to chase. Each episode of STORMS OF THE GREAT PLAINS offers the viewer a unique opportunity to witness first-hand, the awesome power of nature’s fury, as back dropped against the timeless beauty of the Great Plains.

              Durant la soirée du 10 septembre 2011, un orage supercellulaire s'est formé dans la province de la Flandre Occidentale pour ensuite se diriger vers la province de la Flandre Orientale. La structure du cumulonimbus fut très nette et les phénomènes engendrés par l'orage causèrent quelques dégâts. En effet, fortes chutes de pluie et de grêle ainsi qu'un vent intense furent observés sans oublier une activité électrique intranuageuse incessante. Shotlist : 00:00 - Générique de début. 00:10 - Formation de la supercellule. 00:53 - Colonne ascendante en développement. 02:18 - Maturation. 02:38 - Apparition des précipitations et du nuage-mur de la supercellule. 03:03 - Bande d'afflux. 03:23 - Jupe du nuage mur pleinement développé, le tout en rotation. 03:47 - Retour sur la bande d'afflux. 04:09 - Retour sur la jupe du nuage-mur en approche. 04:57 - Vue serrée et moyenne de la base du nuage-mur. 05:29 - Arrivée du rideau de précipitation. 05:53 - Pluie et grêle très intenses. 08:23 - Arrivée d'un second orage produisant des éclairs internuageux. 09:14 - Vue rapprochée des éclairs de la seconde cellule. 09:50 - Vue sur la colonne ascendante d'un cumulonimbus en évacuation. 11:15 - Générique de fin.

This scene tracks a supercell that spawned an apparent tornado east of Scooba, Miss. and continued to move northeast into Alabama. This supercell would eventually find its way to Tuscaloosa, Alabama later that afternoon.
