As a storm chaser, I know how hard it is to get a good shot. This was one night where I was incredibly lucky.

I decided to head out and see what I could catch. I drove and drove and drove in hopes of catching this one cell. While there were many cells firing there was one was the most active.

I ended up driving about 50 miles and came across the perfect spot. I had intercepted the storm and the show I was given was simply amazing.

The pictures from this storm actually made it on the local news in my area.

What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts!

...

While not my primary camera, I use the Canon XSI 450D for my storm hunting. I would literally kill myself if I got a drop of water on my Mark II. Haha
