Taken Thursday night, April 3, 2008. Lariat # 2 Well Sandridge Energy Co. South of Ft Stockton , TX
I didn't take the pic. It was sent to me by a friend, but I thought it was pretty interesting to say the least. Not often can you see a tornado backlit like that. -- If it's true that we learn from our mistakes, MENSA should honor me with their highest award!
It is a beautiful photo, though, and we might not have known about the "real" one had the photoshopped version not been posted. -- Mayors of New York come from nowhere and go nowhere. Wallace Sayre (apparently, so do governors... )

OK TX, was going to question anything like that could happen in OH...
But SERIOUSLY this is REAL??? No PS, etc.... an awsome shot (and I rarely use that word)... never sent it to news?
EDIT OOPS rereading now I see NOT yours... and honestly in KW have captured some amazing things, but I have a REAL hard time no thinking that is at least a composite shot
Though CNN is into the freebie IReporter stuff these days that is one likely they would PAY them for... maybe not now but then, again if some eye witness said they saw it too... just looks too perfect though. Nature is rarely that neat.
Relooking again and sad for them if it is... but that JUST CAN'T be real, its just TOO perfect... they should have dirtiedy it up some. -- »haywardm.com (Hayward's Key West)
These photos aren't nearly as cool as ones already posted by you guys, but I liked them nevertheless. The first picture is of a severe thunderstorm about 15 miles south of my location heading straight for me. The second is of the hail the thunderstorm dropped.
Here's my best pic. 6-23-05. I remember it well. Taking storm pics and having a heart attack at the same time. Didn't go to the hospital till the next day as I thought it was muscle pain. OOPS. If ya got chest pains, ya better get checked out.
The aftermath of Hurricane Wilma 10/24/05 and after.
After Wilma passed over South Florida I as most utility workers where sent out to do damage estimates and begin restoral work as much as practical, during my travels I was able to get a few shots of the damage left behind and some of the restoral work in progress.
The photographs are rather self explanatory. -- If you cannot fix it with a buttset and some beanies you're not a technician.
Our first big storm of the year came through Southern California today. This was taken from my front porch in Newport Beach about 1pm PST. It started blowing and raining harder after I took this, but I didn't capture it since I was messing around with getting this off of the camera.
