Chasing the sky (including storms and tornadoes)
Yes. We chase storms. We chase tornadoes. We have for decades and can count ourselves as part of a small coterie of veteran storm chasers. But our attention is not solely on the violent face of weather. We also chase rainbows, northern lights, clouds of all kinds ... indeed anything which fascinates us in the ever-changing sky. (We have been featured in several documentaries.)
We travel an average of 100,000 km each year on our chases. Our travels are mainly in North America, supplemented by occasional opportunities to travel and photograph the skies elsewhere. We let the weather lead the way. Any one year is likely to find us all across Canada and anywhere in the U.S west of the Mississippi – from Texas and Arizona up to the northern plains. We also make occasional photography trips to the southeast and far north, as well as to Europe (including Iceland). We hope, too, to make an extended photography expedition to Australia and New Zealand some time in the not too distant future.
We are working on a website dedicated to our life in weather, and once it is up you will be able to follow our active engagement with the weather. In the meantime, here is a teaser ... a chase story designed to give you a taste of what it is like to chase tornadoes. See Catching the Big One, the ultimate tornado chasing thrill encounter.
