Tag a friend who might enjoy this Tempest image and journey! --- From Rob about this image: - The most amazing bolt of lightning I've seen, hands down. 🤯 . The updraft was exposed, and as we watched, it threw out 3 or 4 of these in a row. 🌩️ . We saw the main leader bolt strike the ground, and then the crawlers spread out through the updraft and the top of the cloud like a spiderweb. . It happened in a split second, but it felt like slow motion. Absolutely incredible. So glad the @pluto_trigger nailed this! 🙏⚡ . 👓 Sigma 12-24mm f/4 🔼 Benro GoPlus Travel CF 🎒 Tenba Shootout 32L ⚡ Pluto Trigger . #stormchasers #stormchasing #tempestchasers #storms #weather #nature #supercell #lightningstrike #thunderstorm #thunder #lightning #montana #sunset #earthofficial #earthpix #ourplanetdaily #clouds #stormporn #bestintravel #beastmode #jaw_dropping_shots #exploretheworld #travelgram #plutotrigger #benroletsgo #palebluedotphotography #tenbatough #natgeo #sky #skyporn

Dale & Karlie in Emerald Australia --- REPOST: @dkphotographyau chosen by @tracyleephotos --- #tempestchasers to be featured or post on Facebook.com/groups/tempestchasers. Tag a friend who might enjoy this Tempest image and journey! --- From Dale about this image: - Emerald, Australia - After a 10 hour mad dash with the family & @hsc_thomas we arrived a few days ago in Central QLD for 2 days to chase some expected Supercells. On Day 1 we struggled to capture anything worthy of posting but yesterday we got really lucky. We tracked west to meet 2 cells that were about to merge on radar. At sunset we got hammered with CG's (cloud to ground strikes) & Anvil Crawlers with these Mammatus Clouds. And just on the horizon we got a break in the 2 storms with a warm glow of light. It doesn't get any better than this! Big thanks to @higginsstormchasing for your help on the day with data & radar updates. _____________________________________ . #ItsAmazingOutThere #special_shots #ig_shotz_oct18 #got__greatshots #igshotz #ig_stormclouds #clouds_of_our_world #sky_sultans #skymasters_family #sky_brilliance #ptk_sky #sky_captures #sky_marvels #tv_cloud #igpodium_earth #splendid_earth #nature_skyshot #exploringaustralia #australia_vacations #australia_shotz #ig_australia #ig_discover_australia #worldmastershotz_australia #australia_shotz #OutbackAustralia #traveloutbackaust _____________________________________ 📷 Camera: Nikon D850 + 14-24mm Lens f/2.8.

Con mucha alegría les comparto que ya he recibido mi sexto premio Internacional de Fotografía de Naturaleza y Paisajes. Este sábado se hizo publico el fallo donde mi imagen fue elegida de entre más de 45 mil fotografías...además destacar que participaron fotografos de más de 120 paises...increíble. Lejos del premio siempre he tenido claro que mi fotografía en este momento es la mejor imagen tomada nunca a una tormenta sucia...mi unico objetivo aquí sería superarla. Muchas gracias a todos.

It brings me a rush of energy that I can’t even describe. I’ve clocked thousands of miles chasing storms all over the southwest. Having them come to my home recently was a rare event.

Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Rob about this image: ・・・ Dream Shot... I’ve been telling my shooting buddies lately about my dream shot - a huge strike over a bridge. The night of this storm, I couldn’t get to sleep. So I headed across the bridge to try & shoot some. It was pouring rain so I lifted the hatch back of my car, set my tripod up under it & sat inside inside the car to try to catch something. These crawlers were happening nonstop but in a different direction every time. Where ever I was shooting one would go off in a different spot. Every time I changed the angle, one will go off where I’d been pointed before. Eventually I settled on shooting at the bridge and hoping for the best. Right before I called it quits, this happened. The only thing is, it didn’t happen exactly as you see it here. This image is made from a single photo, but it’s cropped heavily with various adjustments for maximum visual goodness. See my stories for the original shot. Get ready to be disappointed. Maybe. But hey… I bought the 42 megapixels, I’ll use em as I see fit! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ @sonyalpha a7r3 . . . . . . #lightning #fun_in_florida #shotzdelight #heatercentral #capecoral #fierce_shots #night_excl #itsamazingoutthere #lovefl #staysaltyflorida #roamflorida #hashtagflorida #bevisuallyinspired #moodygrams #agameoftones10k #reflectiongram #supreme_nightshots #earthfocus #longexpoelite #moodygrams #cloudzdelight #longexpo_addiction #usaprimeshot #ig_killerz #shutterbugpix #ig_color
