Storming Away

Photograph by Cristiano Xavier, National Geographic Your Shot

“This was the last picture [from] an incredible day,” writes Your Shot member Cristiano Xavier. “We saw more than 15 tornadoes.” Xavier captured this image in Simla, Colorado, stopping briefly after outrunning the storm.

I like the photo. We do not see anything like this here in the Czech Republic. We have simply not this kind of climate. But really I like the picture, the countryside with the tornado plus  the road, the housings to the right , the fields , a good composition - nice! Thanks !
