“Storm Riders” Top Ten

Currently in Hurricane Season mode, but the Atlantic Basin is quiet. Below I’ve posted possibly the top ten best photographs Juston Drake and I shot during the filming of the Television Series “Storm Riders” on The Weather Channel.  I say “possibly” because there are so many great photographs it’s very hard to chose the best.  The selection process involved many types of photos, but that was becoming too difficult, so narrowed it down to just tornadoes to make the process easier.  The Campo CO tornado was the only tornado to appear twice, because this tornado was so photogenic and had so many different amazing shots.

One thought on ““Storm Riders” Top Ten

  1. Beautiful pictures and I am a huge fan of your show. I enjoy it because it’s educational. Your show has taught me a lot about chasing(I chase in Western/Central PA) and has helped me out tremendously. I bet it was difficult to narrow it down what pictures to use because they are fantastic. I have a hard time chosing 12 pictures every year when I make my storm chasing calendar for my family. My favortie episode of “Storm Riders” was the Campo one. That tornado is so photogenic and I love the blue sky in the back drop. Keep up the good work and stay safe.
