Independence Day

It’s possible I have a fetish for supercell cloud formations. But this was too awesome to pass up, especially given photographer Marko Korošec’s name for the image: “The Independence Day.”

While on storm chasing expeditions in the Tornado Alley in USA I have encountered many photogenic supercell storms. This photograph was taken while we were approaching the storm near Julesburg, Colorado on My 28th, 2013. The storm was tornado warned for more than one hour, but stayed an LP storm through all its cycles and never produced a tornado, just occasional brief funnels, large hail and some rain.

My correction: “…brief funnels, large hail, some rain, and a few thousand alien attack ships.”
