These photographs are the work of superb storm chaser Mike Hollingshead. He is one of those stuntmen-meets-scientists who leap in cars and zoom off in search of terrifyingly bad weather like tornadoes and super storms.
Many of these photographs are for sale and available as prints from his website Extreme Instability. If you like this sample then go shopping.

Would you consider spending a year as a storm chaser? Grabbing a camera, laptop and jumping into a car to speed off into danger? Or are you just glad that those who hear the calling also take some impressive photographs?
What sort of camera set up would you recommend for storm chasing and weather photography?
