My photo assistant and I started the day early and so did this storm. It was early afternoon. Within an hour of arriving at my target area, we got to witness full tornado genesis, from the very first towering cumulus clouds to the development of this spectacular slow-moving land spout tornado. At one point, the tornado changed direction and moved straight toward us, forcing me to speedily backup. But when I stopped my vehicle, the tornado surprisingly stopped: less than 200 feet in front of us directly over the road. It just stood there, spinning, almost like it was watching us. As luck would have it, I was on assignment for Nikon and testing an early release model of the Nikon D700. I jumped out of our research vehicle, grabbed the DSLR and started shooting. I stepped back to include the vehicle in the frame to give it scale. It was one of the most memorable days of my 23-year career.' - @jimreedphoto
