I took this particular shot Christmas Eve 1994 while holidaying on my parent’s farm. It was a very overcast and stormy day. I had a feeling that something out of the ordinary may occur. So I grabbed my Sister as a camera assistant and went to the paddock where my father and brother in law were harvesting wheat. I started taking shots of the wheat with Susan holding the flashgun. I lit the subject with a warm gel and used a graduated grey filter to darken the bottom of the photograph. This was not an easy shot to take considering the wind was blowing about 45 knots and I was shooting in very low light while hand holding a hasselblad camera.
This shot is of a super cell thunderstorm system and the closest thing that you will get to in this country to a Tornado it was published both here and in USA.
