The Campo Tornado of 2010 by MattGranzPhotography The Campo Tornado of 2010 by MattGranzPhotography
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'm sure glad I was wrong!

Do you know this tornado's rating on the Fujitsu scale? Because I do know that size doesn't matter. Anyway, nice picture. I love tornadoes.
