Trucking into the Storm
As we watched the HP supercell approach our position, a tanker truck with a red placard (!) inexplicably drove right into the storm, which likely contained giant hail. This picture won Best in Show at the 2013 University of Illinois School of Earth, Society, and Environment Research Review and is one of my favorite shots I've ever taken. It's really not all about the tornadoes, folks. Taken west of Berlin, OK, May 19, 2012.
