Fire after the Storm
You got guts to follow a tornado. I've been hiding for two of them when I lived in the southeast. But I now I would probably do same. Eventhough you missed the tornado, you were presented with an awesome looking thunderstorm. It really looks like there was a fire inside the cloud. The color is very intens. I like the fact that you included some trees for scaling. The photo does have some noise, but not something I would really worry about.

WOW!!! A fine capture of contrast and colors. It looks like the gateway to Hell. When two unstable air masses meet the result can be beautiful yet catastrophic. I'm envious of the explosive display of nature that you witnessed. You're posting some outstanding photos. Keep up the good work. Another very informative and interesting note :)

firstly i must tell you how jealous i am of you for witnessing a sight like this! Here in the south of the UK we very rarley (if ever) get cloud formations as dramatic and well defined as this and combined with this beautiful colour - wow. As Niek says, there's a little noise but who cares when the shots like this?!
Hope you have more luck with the chasing next time!
well done and thanks for sharing,

I love the very interesting active line of the silhouetted trees running across the whole frame. The clouds are amazing.

Apocaliptica magnificencia, el contraste de los tonos calidos con los frios es fenomenal, la presencia escenica es omnipotente, definitivamente me encanta y me hace presente el poder de dios...

Sweet image. This should have three times the amount of points it has so far, so I'll add two to total too.

I love BIG skies. You did a great job of capturing this one with the trees silhouetted and with the red heat behind the central clouds. A lot of power!
