Funnel Cloud

Funnel CloudLast night on my way home from work I had stopped off to take some pictures of the local farm fields. There was a storm brewing south of my location and I could even hear some rumblings of thunder. As I was getting back into my car I noticed a strange cloud formation in the sky. As I watch the clouds for a few minutes the beginnings of a funnel cloud came into formation. Luckily for our communities the tornado never touched down. I know these are not some of my best photographs but I thought I would share them any way.

    Having been in tornado alley – these skies are nothing to take for granted – good shots.
