This was an amazing sight! This was a very violent tornado as well. Probably the most violent I have ever documented, and certainly the largest! What an amazing, amazing chase day. My first chase day of 2015!!!

Sadly no lightning in these parts for a bit so here is one from storms early this year. My first night of shooting lightning and I was pretty spoilt with the light show. This night got my hooked on shooting storms

Taken on June 2014 from 30,000 feet in the air. I was approaching McAllen, TX. I love how these clouds are linear.
