[small_button text="Follow Clyve" title="Cool Button" url="https://www.facebook.com/clyve.herbert?fref=photo" align="left" target="_blank"] Apart from those who like to take selfies with tornadoes, we prefer to take images of dedicated chasers up close to a tornado. It's hard to describe the passion of those who place themselves in high risk regions of a tornado. Personally for us it's trying to understand the science behind the atmospheric phenomenon. Other chasers have other reasons why they get close. Nevertheless, a tornado is a rare and violent part of nature that most chasers have a very healthy respect for. 4th June 2015
