Artist's Description

A year ago, on May 31st, I witnessed the beautiful Campo Colorado Tornado. The view I had however, was the backlit side of the twister. Most everyone else on the chase was on the other side of the funnel and witnessed it as a white tornado with a beautiful blue sky behind it.

I was still miles away when I shot this at 200mm. I was jumping up and down in excitement because I figured with only five days to chase, and this being my next to last day out, that I wouldn’t see anything more than a severe storm. I have to thank my friend Andy Hoeland who prodded me to keep chasing when I was sure the storm would be over by the time I reached it. Both he and Blake Knapp are to be thanked for the success I had on this day.

I think I feel a Ringo song coming on….
