    Clouds/Tornado ?

    Pic any good?..

    any idea what it is?..

    Tornado, Wall Cloud, or just a Supercell?..



    pic is resized from 2048x1536 to 640x480 of course....

    apparently this was a Tornado, and I thought it was just a simple wall cloud and went elsewhere...I shoulda chased that bad boy

    Looks more like a wall cloud, since it doesn't seem to have any rotation.

    I was on a hill...
    I couldn't have gotten a whole lot closer...b/c there was nowhere back there I could go to get close, as there was sometype of woods back there...I was unsure of what it was...I was prolly 5-6miles away from it..

    I found out later it was a tornado, or at least developed into one...I would have tried to get a bit closer to it..had I know...It was an amazing site though..

    Nothing quite as adrenaline pumping as seeing a tornado in person...only one I've ever seen I saw about 5 years ago at work, less than a mile away from where I was at...wish I had had a camera at the time with me...
