Artist's Description

This shot was taken only seconds after the birth of the final tornado this monster cloud would produce. Where I was standing, there was no wild winds or violent sounds to be associated with this twister, it actually seemed gentle and peaceful from my vantage point, though the winds inside it were spinning at well over 200mph.

I shot this picture wide angle @ 12mm, and then after shooting a dozen or so pics realized that I forgot to being my 200mm zoom with me, so I ran back to my car and as I approached it, a kindly Sheriff informed me that I missed the funnel "rope out" and when I looked back it was completely gone.

I held out on hope that another vortex would appear but none did. Lesson learned. There was still much to photograph and I had a good time, but I am still, many months later, kicking myself for that mistake.

Hopefully I will be back out in Tornado Alley Spring 2012.
