Sorry, but that looks very fake to me. Where is this supposed to have occurred, perhaps you could provide more details if there are any available.

according to the tweet Simla, Colorado. No idea if it's real but he does take awesome photos, just went and looked through his pictures.

No reason to think it must be fake. There are enough people chasing storms that eventually some nice pics will be taken.

This has to be shopped, but it's cool! I saw the vid of this twister on the news, not nearly as impressive!

Website

Looks like he is into storm chasing during the season.

I think what it is that makes it look fake maybe is the material it's sucking up. The spout could be over a plowed field which contrasts badly with the green fields in the foreground. That and he should have masked the spout from sharpening which is a bit of an error in my opinion. But then if its sharpened for print its probably fine in print.

The "photo" has a website in its lower right hand corner. That site does not exist when spelled with 3 letter s as in the pic.

However, with only 2 letter s, that person does have a website, and is a photographer, and has photographed storms.

But the picture shown does not appear on his website.

I don't see it there either. Is this not his twitter though?

ETA: From his twitter it says it was taken today, so it would not be on his webpage.

It was a real twister, and it did happen today. My guess is he enhanced the photo via photoshop, but this event did happen. I live in southern Colorado, saw the vid of it, but it wasn't that stunning. I have no doubt the photo was taken, but I really don't think it looked quite like the pic in the OP. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I'm not seeing this pic in any of the local feeds.

Went to his site and noticed he loves using HDR imaging. That gives everything that grainy, disjointed look that can make things appear to be fake.
I'm sure that the material is quite real, but clearly he shopped the hell out of it to make it an uber spectacular image.

Very nice.

So would it be safe to say that this photo is based on real events?


I love the photo personally, I like the fact that there is clarity in some parts and not in others, draws my attention to the spout and those striking spirals.

Yep! Confirmed 100% from my end.

I don't think this video can be embedded on ATS, but if anyone wants to see the video of this twister, it's right here on the KKTV
home page. Watch it soon because they always update the page, the link will be gone within a day or so.

Linky, click here

It is a cool picture but it just looks so much more like a watercolor painting. I didn't mean to question the validity of the event itself. There was not enough information provided when I first viewed it, but I do not take tornadoes lightly at all. I have seen firsthand the devastation they cause.

Thanks for sharing that. Okay, so best enhanced version of a real tornado might be the best way to put it!

That's a nice image but the problem with modern photography is that it's always shopped to some degree.

Beautiful blue skies, turquiose oceans, misty flowing water - kind of makes normal photography insignificant.

I love photography and I'm also a weather nerd, but this looks photoshopped. I'm not that familiar with Photoshop but I've seen a lot of great tornado pics as I follow some of the well known storm chasers. Definitely an awesome picture as far as photography goes but I doubt it's "natural." Thanks for sharing though. Makes me want to go storm chasing which is one of my goals.

I think it's a real pic, but was put through photoshop a couple times to enhance it before uploading it.
