Orchard, IA tornado funnel cloud 061008

Ever seen a tornado close up?

Is this picture real or fake? Many sites are reporting it as questionable. For instance, the lighting looks abnormal for 9 PM.

“A huge tornado funnel cloud touches down in Orchard, Iowa, Tuesday, June 10, 2008 at 9:04 p.m. The Globe Gazette and Mitchell County Press News reported that Lori Mehmen of Orchard, took the photo from outside her front door”. (via Yahoo news)

The image below is of a storm photographed by Mike Hollingshead. He’s quite a persistent storm chaser. Check out his new book and website at the links below for some awesome photography!
