Ground-scraping wallcloud on a powerful supercell thunderstorm in SW Texas near Garden City on May 26, 2014.  Although there was plenty of rising dust with some slow rotation, no tornado developed at this point.

Plenty of Fuel  A second tornado-warned supercell from May 26, 2014 near Big Spring, TX.  This one was a little way S of Stanton.  Uncannily similar to the first one we chased that day.  Similar conditions, similar result.

Big Spring Beast  Menacing tornado-warned supercell thunderstorm over a farmer's field near Patricia, TX on May 26, 2014.  Although not as finely sculpted as some cells, the large, low wallcloud and layered updraft base are impressive.  The storm produced several reported brief tornadoes, none of which were easily visible.

Waurika Sculpture Layered left edge of a tornado-warned supercell near Waurika, OK on May 7th, 2014.  Since we were rather close to this massive thunderstorm, I really needed a wider angle lens to capture it all.
