Tornado Over Odebolt

:star: Witness the power of nature...:star:

A cyclic tornadic supercell drops a cone tornado over the small town of Odebolt, IA as its updraft churns above. Sorry about the noise on this one, had to time high ISOs with the right lightning strikes to get the storm to show up on camera. Night chasing is a huge challenge, especially from a photography standpoint! :phew: Oh well, I'm certainly glad I threw on the wide angle for this shot as I'm fairly certain it's a scene that very few others have a shot of :)

Impressive to even get a good night shot is tricky enough great job with what you where dealing with!

I kinda actually like the blurryness of the shot, it makes it seem more frantic and surreal.
