Escape Monday: Intense Storm-Chaser Pics

Sun shines under long-lived supercell moving across northeast Nebraska May 28, 2004, almost following highway 12 from Niobrara down to Sioux City perfectly.It has been a long-ass time since I last helped you guys Escape Monday and I can only apologise for that. In the last Escape Monday post I wrote, I mentioned that I was going to try something a little different.

See, up until now every time Escape Monday rolled around, I would just trawl the interwebs for cool images and post them on the site, crediting the photographer / artist who created them.

Then I got an email from one of the artists whose work I used saying, “The hell gives you the right to just post my work on your site without having the decency to ask me first if it’s ok?”

The man had a point. So going forward, all the Escape Monday posts you see on the site will only be of work that the artist him / herself has approved for me to post, starting with these images taken by storm chaser Mike Hollingshead.

This guy is certifiably insane. Just the images of the storms he chases are enough to make you shit, but actually being there to get these pics must take gigantic balls.

Powerful stuff. I had no idea the sky could even do that. Makes the paffy little drizzly storms we have in Cape Town look, well, paffy and little.

    Fuck yeah! You’re back in the game Slicky T!

    Good on you for getting the artist’s permission, professional courtesy means a lot, especially when a lot of artists are struggling to make ends meet.

    I’m so happy you’re back online. Keep fighting man.

      Yep, back piloting this old rusted hunk of a site through the interwebs, Johnny Cash blasting in the background as I drink neat single malt and sprout intelligible nonsense to a motley audience of good friends, unsuspecting randoms and bots trying to pass off as humans and failing miserably.

      God knows I’ve missed you guys 😉
