Hail Shaft With Hailbow 18:35 CST Gurley NE, 22 June 2012
" ... the smell of the earth, the wheat, the grass, the charged particles...."
In my continuation of exploring subjects in nature that have an ability to illustrate the interconnection of all life on Earth I found myself stalking a type of single giant cloud called a Supercell.
The storms we were chasing were Supercells, capable of producing grapefruit sized hail, and spectacular tornadoes; they were 50 miles wide and reached as high as 65,000 ft. into the atmosphere. These clouds were so large that they had the capability of blocking all daylight, making it very dark and ominous standing under them.
The following images were made in 2008- 2014 in the Great Plains states of the USA.
