An oldie but goodie: my second tornado ever, just outside El Reno, OK, back in April 2006.

Fun fact: my first tornado started about five minutes before this one, and was still ongoing at the time of this shot. One of the most memorable days of my life!

Fun fact #2: this tornado was anticyclonic, meaning it rotated clockwise. This is quite rare in the northern Hemisphere, accounting for less than 5% of observed tornadoes. It remains the only highly-visible anticyclonic twister I've seen, to this day.
