My Digital Camera Does Not Do This...

This picture is simply incredible and was taken by a local Iowan staring outside her window. Apparently, when the weather turned violent and stormy last Tuesday, Lori Mehmen had the presence of mind to grab her digital camera and take this photo. The local paper picked it up and eventually has been the picture spread everywhere by the AP.

The local paper reported that no injuries from this tornado, but clearly Iowa has not been so lucky with other tornadoes and widespread flooding. This picture captures something so devastating, yet is so beautiful that you almost forget how destructive nature can be.

This image was created in Photoshop ... by Ben Affleck no less.
