Storm Chasing, Photographed

Storm 5

Here in NYC, the snow is coming down hard and we’ve got weather on the brain. These stunning photos from storm-chaser/photographer Mike Hollingshead remind us that the situation could be a lot more intense, via Jakob Schiller at wired:

Hollingshead has been chasing storms for more than a decade and is self-taught, both in meteorology and photography. He grew up in Nebraska watching storms but really got into it after his first real chase landed him right in front of a tornado in Iowa.

“It’s pretty easy to get hooked when that happens,” he says.

At the time he was working at a corn milling plant and chased storms after work or on the weekends. Sometimes, if the conditions looked like they might produce, he’d ask for half a day off. Eventually, the job started to wear on him, and the allure of chasing got bigger, so he quit and started chasing storms full time.
