All I can say is WOW! This group takes some amazing photos. I have some of mine hanging on my walls, but damn if I don't wish I could hang something like these.

Well done.
 
Man there are a lot of excellent 2014 shots here!

These are my pics—no tornadoes for me last year, but still managed to view some beautiful supercells.

Arthur County, Nebraska - May 19, 2014
While shooting time lapse of this tornado-warned supercell approaching over the sand hills, I got a few decent frames with lightning. Had to cut that short to get out of the way and wind south to Ogallala.


Goshen County, Wyoming - May 20, 2014
Two supercells near Torrington were competing for attention. I eventually chose this southern storm with its better defined structure. Naturally, the northern storm strengthened and picked up a tornado warning once I was committed—and then spat out a brief tornado. I was still really happy with the structure and solo views on this one.


Adams County, Colorado - May 21, 2014
Lots of moods to the HP supercell east of Denver.




At this point, a new RFD cut managed to form nice and clear and for a couple minutes I thought I might get a view of at least a brief spinup. Nothin' doin'. This cone-shaped wall cloud was still excellent though.


Wickenburg, Arizona - September 27, 2014
My best Arizona supercell catch so far took place during a transition event at the end of the monsoon season.

There are so many excellent photographers in the storm chasing community. I could look at threads like this all day. Here are a few of my favorite images from 2014.

WOW! That is really cool seeing the Pilger storm from that distance away. All of my pics are from an iPhone so they aren't great, but o well. Thankfully this year I will be chasing with an actual legit camera.

May 8 tornado near Madelia, Minnesota. Very brief touchdown, wasnt quick enough to catch the full condensation to ground.


June 20 tornado warned supercell near Wadena, Minnesota.


August 6 after dark shelf on severe storm near Eau Claire, Wisconsin.


September 3 severe warned supercell near Milaca, Minnesota. Dropped ping pong sized hail on me right after the shot.

Justin, it's awesome to see that Wadena, MN image. I was doing a virtual chase from home that day and had targeted Brainerd, Minnesota the night before. I remember following somebody's stream...it might have been yours...wishing I was there to see that first-hand. So I recognized your view immediately. That's a great shot of a very photogenic storm.

Thanks Jeremy!!, that was one of my biggest risk chases of the year. Just under a 4 hour drive on a two percent tor day, I had a gut feeling all morning and the day before that SPC was underplaying it since models were really consistent on a lone supercell happening in north central Minn. Glad I stuck to my gut, easily the best supercell I have seen in my 4 years of chasing up here in the north :D Even in its dying stages it was insanely photogenic!

I've resisted this thread for a long time, but it finally sucked me in, and I'm glad. You all have posted very very good pics.

Here are some vidcaps from Pilger from a perspective that many of you may have not seen. These are from the SE and S of the tornado that went through town:







Here are some more vidcaps from SD on June 18:
