I was very close at this point and was struggling to stand up in the extreme inflow. The broadscale rotation was amazing and the beaver tail seemed to stretch all the way to Kansas!

I enjoy the power and the chaotic ingredients that come together to produce a structured, breathing (inflow) and exhaling (outflow) organism in the sky that isn't bound by roads and that is beyond our control. An untamable and yet majestic wild phenomenon of nature that only happens in spring/summer here in the prairies. This day had a near zero probability of a tornado but still was an incredible day that I was able to capture forever. A brief moment in time where nature was at its most violent, spending its energy, and I was able to capture it. Makes me wonder what 2015 has in store for all of us.......

I tried to bring the more details I could to this image, in order to clearly see the wall cloud hiding into the RFD core. And I kinda like it this way Occluding supercell near Keskastel, NE France on August the 10th

At the end of a bust chase the least mother nature could do was to put on a spectacular sunset! And it did. It sure was the perfect surroundings to watch it unfold too. Taken out on the Darling Downs, QLD, Australia November 29th 2012
