The Tornado by nexusmind The Tornado by nexusmind
All my life I've wanted to see a tornado. I've chased severe storms for years, a fun thing to do in the Canadian end of tornado alley. Earlier this summer I was watching a particularly serious storm and was rewarded with this. My father took the actual photo and we submited it to the Winnipeg Free Press, in turn selling it to the Canadian Photo Archives. I'll never forget it and I'm determined to see another one next year, no matter how far I have to go.

That is an unusually photogenic tornado -- it's nice that it "posed" for you!  I'm like you -- I absolutely *love* tornadoes (provided they stay away from urban areas and people's homes)!

awesome!  I want to see a tornado in person, it's on my bucket list.  I was close in Edmonton when the clouds started swirling in '05 but it never manifested into a funnel.

great shot!

Tho one and only time I was near a Tornado it appeared to be chasing a friend and me as we drove thru Oklahoma. We were pelted by horizontal rain and the grass around our car was getting sucked back towards the Tornado. The Tornado was twisting at 130 mph winds but was only going about 40+ mph across the ground trouble was our 1973 Dodge Monaco topped out at 80 mph and would over heat if you kept it at that speed for 20 minutes.
