This tornado quickly became multi-vortex, then transformed into a large wedge before further intensifying and growing into the widest tornado ever measured at 4.2km wide.The deadly El Reno tornado touches down under a mesocyclone that was almost on the ground.

Great day chasing with good mates!

This is one of the many bolts I captures on Friday Night off Karratha in North Western Australia, but this one was so bright that it lit up everything like it was daytime..

This is one of a series of composites I put together of that epic lightning storm in Pretoria, South Africa on the 4 January 2014. I've posted a few of them so I'm not sure if I've posted this one already. Anyway, that was one hell of an epic light show I'll never forget. Likes and comments much appreciated.
