Here are a few old photos from a storm chase in Holdrege, Nebraska, July 7, 2005. This was back when I was shooting film with an EOS 3 and a Tamron 17-35mm for the wide end. The wall cloud formed south of town (shown in the top two photos -- the first shot while I was driving, the second shot after I stopped about 1/4 mile from the cloud), then moved northeast and dropped a tornado east of town, narrowly missing the airport. The condensation funnel isn't visible, but the debris cloud is. The wide angle lens makes things look further away; the tornado is never more than a mile away.
