Aha! I got to this one first! That's unusual for me. I've missed so many of your wonderful photos lately. Hopefully I'm here to participate more now.
Great shot! We had funnels around the other night...tore up our roof and the completely peeled the roof off a barn not 1/4 mile away. Makes for interesting nights. ha ha
You guys have had some crazy weather, huh?

Storms like this are no fun but they look beautiful when photographed. I love the colours here, the dark ominous clouds and the bright light on the grass.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

You were in the right place at the right time. I have never seen a funnel cloud! Excellent shot and it looks like you caught it just as it hit the ground. The grass is a wonderful contrast to the dark sky.

Hi Bob. A good land scape showing the storm in the distance. Good colours in the clouds. Yes you were there just at the right time. well done TFS.
Have a nice weekend.
We did have a big storm in the South of England about 20 years ago but the birds seem to survive.but we lost many trees.

What a dark foreboding looking sky Bob. Looks like a big squall shower over our harbour, but we don't usually see tornadoes - only water spouts.
You shot it at the right time Bob - for a moment there I thought you must be going tornado chasing - we see those programs on TV some times. Scary!!
Well captured and it's an interesting shot,

great landscape Bob, you can almost smell the rain in this, excellent work. tfs regards hs
Wow! A tornado! Must have been shocking finding out that it was one!
Apparently England has the most tornadoes of any country but they're all tiny ones... not sure I believe that we have more than you lot in the US though :-)
Lovely moody image.
Well composed, great light, impressive sky, and perfect exposure.
Well done Bob!

Hi Bob,this is a great scoop,perfectly taken whit a very really sensation to be there,excellent work,my best compliments,Luciano
Like the brighter foreground lighting against the dark and foreboding BG.
Seems like there is more violent weather in the Pacific Northwest than there used to be. Micro-bursts and other violent winds, including tornadoes, have hit the western parts of Washington and Oregon on occasion as well.

great hard luminosity of the image, with great contrast
between the foreground and the background,
there is a excellent DOF with the clouds behind the fences,

Hello Bob. Interesting image and useful note too about the cloud touching the ground. I like the horizon captured here with poles making good perspective. The foreground pasture is well documented too and just stunning against that tornado cloud. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. Regards. Jusni

This is a very nasty sky! You don't stay out in the open field when you see such bad weather coming your way.
Wonderful composition and colours.
Very well done

A nice capture of this phenomenon named tornado. I think it is a bit same to our Thunder storms here. Very good captured presentation of this nature terror. Excellent composition and nice view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

The ominous looking sky is well captured in this scene.
Lovely lighting and colours.You have created an atmosphere here.
The lit land contrasts the violent looking sky.
Well composed with excellent POV and DOF.

The diagonal line of the fence is divinding the palouse from the stormy sky. There is a good contrast between the colors. The sky has a dramatic effect on the composition of the image. Have a nice day.
