I'm basically a storm photographer but also like to take pictures of other things, often weather related.  I've always loved to watch storms, but didn't start chasing them until 1999.  In 2002 I bought my first still camera.

The website name actually came from the very first chase.  The weather service had a page about that event and the extreme instability involved in the atmosphere.  I made the website at the same time, so it worked and has stuck.
