[small_button text="Follow Charles" title="Cool Button" url="https://www.facebook.com/TheRealChuckRussell?fref=photo" align="left" target="_blank"] One of the most amazing days of my entire chasing career right here. The Rochelle/Fairdale EF-4 Tornado. This thing was absolutely insane. I still can't get over it all these months later! I always said I wanted to witness a wedge at some point in my life, and this was the one that I could use to check that off my bucket list. Hate it when they affect people in negative ways, but I can't help but be in pure awe of nature's greatest power. The weather. One of the most amazing days of my entire chasing career right here.

Base to Tower. One frame in a timelapse I did back on August 2nd. the symmetry in the lightning and the overall structure maturity make this one of my favorites from that night.

Since it's lightning here and the power just went out, I guess now would be an appropriate time to share a shot from this weekends crazy crazy weather around SWFL.
