[small_button text="Follow Cameron" title="Cool Button" url="https://www.facebook.com/cameron.hinezy?fref=photo" align="left" target="_blank"] July 11 in Quambone, NSW Australia. This was the tornadic supercell that went on to cause some quite substantial damage to some farm properties.. especially by Australian standards! It looks a bit blurry but that's because it was almost pitch dark at the time with only some dusk light still available so I had to use 5 second or so open shutter high ISO shots just to let enough light in to show the structure. But I think that's what makes this shot kinda cool because it shows how much motion and rotation was going on with this storm even just in about 5 seconds..

Another view of the May 27th Canadian, TX tornado. It was nearing the end of its cycle here, looking like a gigantic ice cream cone. And you can see a horizontal vortex on the left.

I took this on a flight this morning while ascending out of Burlington, VT via IPad for Instagram. This was a 360 degree rainbow! It was an awesome site! (Actually a double rainbow)
