    Wow - very cool pictures. Just based on the subject of the post I thought someone was commenting about me. The pictures were a far better topic.

    That's Mike Hollingshead's site. He is a great photographer and storm chaser, and a regular contributor over on Stormtrack. If you are interested in storm chasing that is a great place to go.

    Mike's photos are so good they are frequently stolen and mis-labeled. If you ever got the email with photos from Katrina coming ashore, chances are you saw Mike's storm chasing photos from the Plains.

    Now thats cool Bill. I have seen some of those photos of Katrina coming ashore and alwaya wondered how they are able to capture something like that, but if this guy is a stormchaser than it explains all. He does some excellent work and thanks for the tidbit.

    Oh no. Many of those Katrina photos are not of Katrina at all. They are Mike's photos of supercells in Kansas. That was the point I was trying to make. People steal those photos and claim they are Katrina. The big tip-off should be the vast, flat plains or large cone tornados.

    Bill,
    Oh ok, I misunderstood you, sorry. My fault here, read it the wrong way. I see what your saying. I did however see Katrina photos over the gulf of mexcio that were amazing too. but your right, the tip off should be the vast open lands of the plains.
    thanks again.

    Most people only focus on the upper cell and not the ground when looking at those.

    I've emailed back and forth with him a couple of times, mainly commenting on how great his pics are.

    Looks like I've found a few more screen savers?
