Thanks for the feedback. It really does help a lot.
Eric - yes, shooting these storms is like shooting something between landscapes and sports. The only way I can describe it: You don't know exactly what you're about to shoot or step into as you step out of the vehicle. And when all hell is breaking loose around you/me, I have to make real quick decisions (composition/exposure-shutter speed/focus), and always keeping conscious of what's going on around me (like lightning, hail, is a tornado gonna drop on my head?). But these storms are an amazing sight to behold (to me). Not sure my images can ever do them justice.
And dwood.... yep, the funnel dropped to the ground, though only briefly.
Again, thanks all for the comments. There's very much appreciated. - Mitch
