Too close, too close

Via Reddit, but more information in this article where you’ll find other extraordinary weather related photos.

There have been thousands of fantastic tornado photographs and videos but none quite like this one. It is the nonchalance of Audra Thomas as an F1 tornado swirls a mile away towards her family farm (in the background) that makes it so unusual. She looks like she was posing in front of the Statue of Liberty or such. In fact, the tornado did cut across the farm and destroyed a barn structure on the property. The scene took place south of Beaver City, Nebraska in April 1989. Photo by Audra’s mother, Marrilee Thomas.
