I spent 6 weeks chasing storms in May and June 2007 in Tornado Alley.

Saw lots of good ( "bad" ) weather.

Saw a few tornadoes.

However , this year there were not so many tornadoes.

And often they were either at night ( e.g. the famous Greensburg KS F-5 ), or rainwrapped.

But on June 6 I saw this very photogenic tornado in western south Dakota.

It was on the ground for almost half an hour !

I was chasing with Gene Moore ( ) and , needless to say, I would probably not have seen it without his help. Thanks, Gene !

Below are two more images from the same tornado. The last photo shows Gene Moore in action.

Note to media : these photos are available in RAW , 8 MP.
