A stunning supercell storm near Roswell, NM.

A powerful New Mexico storm passed by us. We watched it for over an hour from tremendous vantage points along the roads.

 

Taken at my beloved and missed Treptower Park...

As the storm moved closer and the anvil was just overhead. We left this location to get farther away for a better view of the entire storm cell.

 

Whatcha think? How many geese on the pond?! :)

From the perspective this was photographed at, I thought it looked like a UFO floating.

A beautiful double rainbow north of Roswell New Mexico with the sun perfectly at my back. We were leaving this storm as soon as the hail passed, but had to stop for this shot. It is a good thing we did, that is when we realized my chase partner Kyle left his new expensive lens on the side of the road 20 miles back. Had we not stopped, we'd have travelled another 150 miles before realizing the lens was gone.

As the storm advanced toward us, June 7th.

A surreal lenticular cloud formation on Kos island, Greece

Our first real night of the trip, in Roswell. We ate dinner, then swam in the motel pool for a while and watched a gathering storm around us. It never really hit *in* Roswell, but seemed to form over us, getting more violent to the north. So after nightfall, we headed about 5 or 10 miles north of town and set up our tripods out on a dirt road. We just hit the shutter and took long exposures, see what we'd catch. For me, I probably had 100 photos of darkness, and maybe 20 decent/passable lightning shots.

 

I was tempted to head further north, straight into the melee, but Sharon was right... we had a long day ahead of us, and should probably call it a night and head back to the motel.

 

(Shockingly better in lightbox.)

Monday was a crazy chase in New Mexico that ended in unreal fashion. This is a 27-image panorama of this insane sunset on the backside of a dying supercell southeast of Roswell, New Mexico last night. The mammatus was mind-blowing, and when I suggested to Sandra and Sarah that the sunset might be awesome once the red shows up in those clouds...I had no idea it would look this amazing.

 

I had two cameras running wide-angle time-lapses, so with my 5D4 I did 27 images using a 50mm lens...so this image I think is about 19,000 pixels wide! Need to print this one.

 

Was a spectacular way to end our chase tour!

This little waterfall is adjacent to a larger waterfall at the ruins of the Roswell Mill in Roswell, GA.

Would the US government be able to cover up the Roswell incident if it happened today?
