Weld County Wall Cloud

I decided to head back a couple of years to a storm I chased with Ryan Wright and Chase Shipley through Weld County just south of Greeley Colorado.  Chase had found this awesome road on top of a hill looking directly into a slow-moving wall cloud coming toward us.  It was dark and really tough to tell it was coming with eyesight but with technology looking at the radar and the use of long exposures we came out with some amazing photos of the wall cloud forming.

I’m not sure why I never processed this image, but sometimes the tools and knowledge you have just don’t allow you to work on it.  We’ve had some recent storm activity and with an itch to get out and chase a storm again I pulled these images from couple of years ago.  I noticed this one and decided to work it again and it just came to life.

Have a great weekend everyone!
