It was cold. In the time frame of about twenty minutes everything turned around. The tornado happened really quick and I was lucky enough to capture this image.

We were situated on Hwy 70 E of Broken Bow, Nebraska at the time the barrel crossed the highway. There was quite a large inversion in place on this particular day (May 26) which delayed TS development and in the end it probably did us a really big favour holding out so long. Special thanks to Dick McGowan on this chase too.

In 99% of situations, our eyes see much better than a camera ever could. In those last 1% of situations, a long-exposure photo can bring the sky to life. SW Oklahoma, April 10th, 2016.

It was very loud. The timelapse includes some sounds of recorded thunder. I sometimes remember to bring field mics with me for recording nature's orchestration.

Storm season is now pretty much dead and dusted here in Northern Australia, apart from the far northern areas closest to the equator. Lonnnngggg dry season ahead, El Nino ensured we had a below average season rainfall and thunderstorm wise. Cyclone season was a massive Bust.  Bring on next season. - Charters Towers Queensland
