Monday brought about a good opportunity for some fall chasing and one of the last chances for storm photography of the year. I had originally planned to head to southern Colorado for a day to get some fall shots in the mountains, but when I had the choice to go after storms or landscapes, I chose storms.
I headed out at 7:30am with my plan to head up through Woodward, OK and up through Dodge City. There I would evaluate how the day was going to play out and make my next move from there. Along the way, I stopped by Big Basin, a prairie preserve between Englewood and Minneola, KS to get some wide open landscape shots sprinkled with colors.
Afterwards, I headed north on Highway 183 all the way up to Wakeeney, KS and headed west to Collyer where I met the storm.
The storms were linear and didn't pose much of a tornado threat. The line extended from northeast to southwest, and this allowed me to drop straight south and pretty much play the entire length of the storm. I ended the chase just north of Jetmore, KS by just sitting and listening to the thunder. Very relaxing!
