Top Shot: Highway to Hail | Photograph by Ryan Wunsch (@ryanwunsch77)
“This photo was taken during a storm chase in the corner of Saskatchewan where I have spent my whole life,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Ryan Wunsch. “The storm was moving very quickly and had just dropped a tornado that hit a farmyard minutes earlier (no one was home, no injuries occurred). Each year I travel 10,000 miles in search of photographic storms but this year my favorite photos came from close to home. My mother joined me on this ‘backyard chase’ and she saw her first tornado ever.” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on December 11, 2018.
