As you can see, I love storm pictures. Being able to witness nature’s most furious weather in all its unstoppable beauty is extremely humbling. Nothing on Earth compares to watching these monsters graze across the plains of tornado alley during storm season. Enjoy!
Ideally, you want to stay at least 20 nautical miles from a thunderstorm due to the inherent. Lightning, hail, and turbulence are major concerns while flying near thunderstorms. However, aerial storm chasing does not require being close to the storm. In order to chase storms in a plane, there is an immense amount of planning, skill, and experience involved to ensure the safety and completion of each flight, as well as maintaining compliance with FAA regulations. Enjoy!
Tornadoes are a feature associated with thunderstorms. They come in all shapes and sizes; ropes, wedges, stovepipe and can cause immense damage when they hit civilized areas. I want to share these tornado pictures with you. I am always so captivated and mesmerized by the unstoppable natural force in front of me that I often end up forgetting to take photos or video while I watch the tornado. Enjoy!
Lightning is a weather phenomenon that happens faster than the blink of an eye. Good thing we have cameras that can catch their jagged beauty as they streak through the skies! My lightning pictures display my favorite bolts in all their splendor. Some too close to fit the entire strike into the picture but every now and then you get something amazing. Enjoy!
I love to fly! That’s why I became a pilot. It really doesn’t matter what type of airplane I am flying. I just love to fly! Photographing every aspect of aviation is just one more hobby I get to enjoy and share with you. I invite you to experience the beauty and excitement of flight with me through this photo gallery. Enjoy!
I love the night sky. There is something alluring about night time photography. With night photos, it is like an entirely new world is revealed after the sun disappears behind the Earth’s horizon. Watch our hidden universe expand as we spin through the night sky. The night reveals a new perspective and a hidden universe. Enjoy!
Within the landscape pictures gallery you will enjoy seeing beautiful landscapes capturing amazing and wonderful sceneries, skylines, and even various objects like trains. Sunsets and sunrises mixed with fall colors always make for nice photographic prints that can be purchased and added to your collection.
A new area of storm chasing interest to me is hurricane chasing. Hurricanes quickly became one of my favorite, yet, most dangerous types of weather to chase. Hurricanes contain everything from deadly lightning, damaging winds, storm surges, and then the eye. The winds can go from 100+ miles per hour to a slight breeze within five minutes and then after a short break, the eye of the hurricane moves away and the storm continues.
