Incredible Photo

I can’t verify the veracity of this photo, in that it’s very possible some 1-old photoshopped it.  But it was sent to me by a coworker and it illicited a “holy shit” from me.  The backstory is the photo was supposedly taken by a man working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, near Texas.  Anyway, as the story goes there was a storm and the guy wanted a picture of the lightening and got more than he bargained for.

Pretty cool huh?  But it’s a fake.  After starting the post it took about five minutes of “internet” research to dig up the fact that the photo is a fake.

Here’s a photo of the original, taken in 1991 at Lake Okeechobee in Florida.  Sometimes the myth is more interesting than the truth.  Either way.  Tornadoes?  Scary fucking shit.
