Silhouetted Supercell by FramedByNature Silhouetted Supercell by FramedByNature
Canon 60D
18-135mm kit lens


Got lucky as a bolt of lightning struck directly behind the updraft from our vantage point, giving us a rare silhouetted view of this nighttime storm structure :nod: It was starting to drift north and die a bit north of us, making some of the lower-level inflow features difficult to discern at night. But once this bolt struck... boom! No doubt about it, you could see the meso, inflow features, mammatus, everything. This was one of my favorite shots from the night... but stay tuned for my #1 favorite shot from the chase ;)

Holy shit...
are you a storm chaser??? Usually when a shot is this beautiful I can only assume someone has taken the time to risk their life to obtain it. 0^0

It almost looks like a smoking flying saucer...

Really epic shot though, I always love it when you post these!

Sweet!

Is it really this small updraft that can create such an huge anvil? Or is it created by several cells merging?
Curious ... :)

Just one updraft. Watching their anvils spread out on satellite is always cool to see! :nod:

Forget about the other photo; THAT is a really nasty looking tower! But not all supercells produce tornadoes.
