I finally did it, I took a perfectly good brand new HDSLR camera and hacked it for use in the full spectrum photography. I'm been wanting to do this for a while now and now to document storms in the Near Infrared and Ultra Violet light.
Today was a little soggy for the weather but it was a fun local video run with the flash flooding in Saint Paul, MN.
Last weekend, (yes I'm working on getting my blog updated) we were out in western South Dakota to go explore the Bad Lands and Mount Rushmore.
Today was one of those days you live for as a chasers. I was able to make it out to South Dakota to chase today and got on the tornado that formed near Alpena, SD and tracked all the way up to just southwest of Huron, SD.
From what I can tell, the torando did not hit any towns or homes, just farm fields and tree's. As a chaser, this is the perfect tornado because they form over an area that does very little impact to personal property. The worst damage I saw was roofing shingles torn off and powerlines down.
Wow, that was a pretty extreme day on the road running the desk from the field but I did not miss a beat. Lots of tornado footage from my crews including a world first live stream from Ben of Twin Tornadoes on The Weather Channel in Nebraska.
All of the video is on our youtube channel at www.youtube.com/bnvn1
Just a little something from this morning after the moon set before the morning civil twilight when the Auroras were dancing in the sky.
I know I said I was going to update my blog a lot more then I have, yeah well, been busy with work and putting all my energy and time towards StormChaingVideo.com the facebook pages, the social media sites, the other stuff and life.
I'm going to be working on a site overhaul this summer with more stock photos and video stuff. Until then, I'll try to get more updates about what I have been up to.
Saturday I was woken up with the calls about thunderstorms and flooding. Yes, it has been flooding a bit here in Central Minnesota.
Ok just getting caught up on the personal blog about what has been happening in the last month. Winter is finally over but I think we will have one more major winter storm in northern Minnesota before the end of this month.
Ben and I survived the road trip across the country and we set the record for being the first to live stream across the United States of America and to live stream across the USA on Youtube Live. It took 45 hours from Time Square in NYC with non stop driving to Venice Beach Pier in California.
