wall with storm photos

Last year I finally came to print my first storm photo. It was my shot of the first tornado on the Dodge City, 2016, outbreak. It was one of my most significant photos as it was my best chase day, one of my best photos and it also included a few storm chasers in the […]

It is difficult not to have a double-sided attitude towards social media nowadays. At its best, it is a fun and excellent source of information, the perfect way to quickly get crucial information, and to keep in touch with friends, acquaintances and like-minded all over the world.  At its worst, social media can be used to easily spread […]

Road trip with thunderstorms in Sweden

I live very close to the Falsterbo Horse Show which is an annual and very popular horse event in Sweden. It is also a good time to get the heck out of Falsterbo, rent out the house and go visit friends around the country, which is exactly what I did with my family. I was happy […]

My flight was not until later in the afternoon so we had a slow morning and as the other guys went for lunch I got a ride to the airport. I enjoyed the time at the airport editing photos while waiting for my flight. My first flight was through Dallas, which actually had a 5% […]

I had been quite stressed about how to get back to Tulsa as the other would keep on chasing and I had booked a rental car in Amarillo just in case. During the morning forecast however we realized we had the option to, once again, chase high-based storms in the Texas panhandle or go for […]

Day 9: Chasing 5 states in one day

The moisture had returned to our target area but we were waiting for a weak trough to eject into our target area to enhance 500mb winds etc and strengthen any storm that would exist in our target area – but it really hadn’t passed over the mountains yet, so no help from there. Thus, when […]

Day 8: Lightning storm at sunset in New Mexico

We slept in Raton, NM, which was pretty much our target area for the day to come as well. We knew the storms would fire off the mountains and take their sweet time to get to out on the front range where the severe storm potential was better – and they sure did. We chased […]

Day 6 never became a chase day so I spent all day at the hotel catching up on work. Our Day 7 (Wednesday) target was initially SW Texas but the forecast indicated that there would be no storms so we decided to head up Pikes Peak, outside of Colorado Springs to do some more mountain […]

We knew our Day 3 was a lucky day and also the last day of severe storms (we could reach) for several days. On Day 4 we had to go to Denver to leave Alex’ rental car as well as fix our own so we left Burlington for Denver and went straight up towards Rocky […]

Day 3 was our best hope for a good chase day before a crashing cold front would remove all the moisture from the Plains and cause a couple of down days. The setup was much better than Day 2 with great moisture (60+), good helicity, great instability (2.000-3.000 CAPE in some places) but there were […]

Day 1 & 2: Surprisingly good storm in Colorado

After a really active weather pattern we were getting into a new pattern with much more iffy setups. As of the start we used Day 1 to drive from Tulsa to Colby, KS, to get in position for what could be a marginal day on Day 2 (June 7th) and a better day on Day […]

chase season 2019

I am finally here and it feels absolutely awesome to have 10 days of storm chasing to look forward to! My flight over was super convenient and I was not bored for a second even though it was quite a long flight. David picked me up at the airport yesterday evening and I crashed straight […]

What camera equipment I bring on a storm chase

Storm chasing often comes with some sort of photography interest in one way or another. Many want to document, print, or share there sightings as still photography or video. This is equally true for me. Storm chasing really kicked my photography interest off with a bang! My first two chases I had my Canon 450 […]

stormchasers jenna blum review

I just finished reading “The stormchasers” by Jenna Blum, a book I purchased together with “What stands in a storm” by Kim Cross earlier this spring. Where “What stands in a storm” was a documentary about the April 27th 2011 tornadoes in Alabama “The stormchasers” is pure fiction. It is a story about Karen, a […]

In one week I am flying out of Copenhagen to Tulsa to start my much longed for chasecation. As mentioned, I will be chasing with David Williams and his Tornado Alley Chasing together with my fellow Swede Pär/Alex and a czech woman named Iva. As of mid May the Plains have been very active and […]
