This is a really cool picture because it looks really awesome how the whole cloud is in a swirling like a wall of death.
This picture is awsome beyound words. I can only imagine what it was like not only to see such a storm , but to feel it's power up close.
Goodness, Gunjan! You really captured the power of the sun and earth at work. With the timing you let the light speak. Very nice!!!
I love the wee little car lights off in the distance, lower left, smothered by this enormous beast. Excellent perspective. And thanks for the camera info and settings.
This is hands down the coolest Nature shot I have ever see. Ever!! Superbly framed and captured. Your postion is spot on. WOW!!
I'm guessing during the photo of the day processing, the title was changed from it being shelf cloud to "tornado". I have mentioned this problem to the natgeo team, but just in case this doesn't get fixed I would like to let everyone know that this is a picture of a shelf cloud that I captured but did not have a tornado at this point. Hope you all enjoy!
Thanks so much! @Shauna Nicole
Hi @Gunjan Sinha - Thanks for the note; we've updated the title.
Thank you! @Meghan Murphy
