Your Camera Body Doesn’t Matter Anymore for Image Quality

This is going to come as a shock to anyone who prefers to buy expensive cameras, but the camera body you buy really isn't giving you a leg up anymore; Look this is perhaps my hottest take of the early parts of 2024...

Total Solar Eclipse as seen from NE Texas in 360°!

I couldn’t believe that the clouds parted just in time for this magnificent show. Watch the final minutes to totality and then experience the minutes of totality we got to witness. This was just an unbelievable day. I don’t think there’s any better way to share this experience right now than to just share the…

North Texas Supercell and Tornado Threat (April 8, 2024)

After we’re done with the eclipse the team is jetting west towards supercell development on the triple point. The tornado threat should rise into the evening.

Oklahoma Dryline Chase: Will Small Supercells Do Big Things? (April 6, 2024)

Giant Hail Possible Monday in OK/KS (April 1, 2024 Outlook)

While the environment doesn’t look as primed for tornadoes (as of right now) for Monday, I can tell you it looks like an environment ripe for absolutely gargantuan hailstones. Days like Monday are a throwback to a simpler time in storm chasing when you could expect all setups before April 20 or so to be…

Sometimes You Just Need a Storm For Beauty on the High Plains

Give me a moment to wax poetic, but I really enjoy a good High Plains storm — and a good desert storm. Really, just a storm. June was coming and I was ready to hit the road again across the Southern High Plains. There was a reasonable shot at some supercells across portions of the…
