Supercell Photograph Contest (Now till 0Z 12/19/05)

Not open for further replies.
Nick's thread gave me a great idea... lets have a contest! To combat SDS, open that chest of photographs you've taken during your chases.

Take your best supercell shot and merge it with a foreground of your choice... it can be wacky, scenic, whatever. Just put a supercell in a place you wouldn't normally expect it! The winner gets nothing more than the pleasure of beating out everyone else!

The Rules:
-Supercell shot must be taken by yourself.
-Foreground can be from whatever, but if it is not your picture... please credit the proper place or ask for permission if it is from a specific photographer.
-Contest runs from now till 0Z on December 19th.
-Each stormtrack member may post (1) shot.
-At the end of the period, I'll setup a voting thread for all valid entries.
-Limit posts to submissions within this thread. Add a title or caption!

Stormchasers.... start your image editing software!

Ice sheet supercells will become the norm...not the abnorm 100 years from now... and chasing will expand to arctic latitudes that were once considered vast acreages of wilderness. Southern Saskatchewan has become the new Oklahoma by this time as the southern and central plains have now become deeply embedded in tropical easterlies. Chasing has gotten so crowded in southern Canada that veterans of the mid and late 2000s have migrated to 75°N and points north....

(this futuristic composition was created using my May 4, 2002 Medicine Lodge KS supercell photo and an ice sheet photo on the Santa Barbara City College website found by doing a Google search)

LOL I had a feeling someone was going to use that photo! I almost did myself...

By 2220, tour groups make the jump to week long chase tours along one of the Martian Caprocks....

Although gas is now around $1099.99 per gallon, many tourists are willing to pay to see the rare martian tornadic supercell.

Sometimes my viewfinder is a place I wouldn't normally expect to find a supercell!!! :lol:
 
Iraq: our secret weapon against the insurgents.

Mars: I thought someone would think of putting one there. Dust devils on steroids!

Ice sheets: I was waiting for a foreground from March of the Penguins. Pretty please?

I read the first post and came up with my idea myself, sadly I saw you already took it. So instead of doing this myself, let me agree with Jason that this is the most unlikely place to find a supercell for me and it deserves the win hands down :lol:
